435. Deputy Alan Kelly asked the Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government if he will confirm that in line with the one person one salary principle, no public servant that is a member of a State board or agency under the control of his Department is currently in receipt of remuneration in the form of board fees and if any such remuneration is being paid that such payment will be discontinued and payments that were wrongfully paid will be reclaimed.

Written answers (Question to Housing)

Details in relation to the expenses of Board members are available within the respective annual reports of the State agencies under the aegis of my Department. Where public servants are appointed to such  Boards, no fees are payable. This is set out clearly in the Remuneration and Superannuation element of the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies, published by my colleague, the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, which also indicates that the implementation of and adherence to these arrangements is the responsibility of individual State Bodies.
