Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

On foot of a Notice of Attachment received from the Revenue Commissioners in respect of payments arising to the person named, my Department is obliged to pay over all moneys to Revenue until the full amount of the Notice of Attachment is cleared.   

If the person named reaches a different agreement with Revenue, my Department will implement any such revised arrangement but this must be on instruction from Revenue.
