In response to the Deputy’s question there are seven credit card holders in my Department with annual fees costing €155.00 in 2011 and €248.00 in 2012 respectively. There are four credit card holders in the Office of Public Works and the total cost per card since 2011 is €230. It is the Departments policy to ensure that all credit card payments are cleared at the end of each month to avoid penalty interest payments.
