Written answers (Question to Finance)

The cost of the diesel rebate scheme in any given year is variable, depending on the volumes of claims and the quarterly rebate rates used. Therefore it is not possible to give an estimate of the additional revenue that would accrue were the diesel rebate scheme to be scrapped.

The highest annual cost of the scheme was €21m while the lowest annual costs of the scheme was zero.
