Kathleen Lynch

Ceist:

55 Kathleen Lynch asked the Minister for Finance the proposals, if any, he has to alter the current system of remunerating county sheriffs; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16780/96]

Proposals from the Revenue Commissioners in respect of a remuneration package for Revenue sheriffs are currently under consideration in my Department. As part of this process my officials are in consultation with the Department of Justice which also has responsibilities in this area. I hope that this matter can be finalised at an early date.
