Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Office of Public Works, which comes under the remit of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, is responsible for the acquisition of accommodation for Government Departments, including the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport. 

The National Treasury Management Agency, which comes under the remit of the Minister for Finance, is the State body which provides asset and liability management services to Government and is designated as the State Claims Agency when performing the claims management, risk management and legal cost management functions delegated to it under the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2000 and the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2014.

Accordingly, the publication of personal injuries payouts would be a matter for consideration by the State Claims Agency in the first instance.
