Written answers (Question to Public)

The information requested by the Deputy in relation to former Ministers is contained in the 2011 Finance Accounts as published at the following link; https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/48b743-finanace-accounts-2011-statement-14-annuities-pensions-etc-for-forme/

It should be noted that severance payments for Ministers were abolished under the Oireachtas (Ministerial and Parliamentary Offices) Amendment Act 2014 and no members of the current Government will receive such payments.
