Under the FOI Act 2014, I am seeking the following: - details of the number of members who have an internet connection provided to their home by the ICT unit of the Oireachtas in 2018 and 2019 - details of how much was spent on providing this service in 2018 and 2019. For avoidance of doubt, this refers to the following extract from the guide to the PRA allowance . Q: What proportion of home telephone costs are allowable under the PRA? A: Category 9 allows a portion of telephone calls made from a Member's home to be apportioned as allowable expenditure under the PRA. This amount is 20%. In order to reflect the services and packages offered by telecommunication companies. The 20% is now allowable against the cost of calls, line rental and internet connection only (provided that the internet connection is not that already paid by the ICT Unit). For home utility bills/ packages that also include a television subscription, that portion of the bill relating to the television subscription is not allowable. This does not apply to Ministers or Ministers of State.
