Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

My Department incurred no expenditure in respect of external legal fees in the years 2011 to date in 2019.

The Moriarty Tribunal of Inquiry and the Commissions of Investigation, which are independent of my Department, have sanction to engage legal counsel, as required, to assist them in their work. All legal services fees are paid at rates approved by the Government.
