Ceisteanna (108)

Dara Calleary

Ceist:

108. Deputy Dara Calleary asked the Minister for Education and Skills if his attention has been drawn to the fact that a €500 levy is being placed on approved training organisations, ATOs, to register themselves and their trainers with SOLAS-FÁS for one year; that it costs €200 to register each supplementary tutor; his views on whether this is a harsh fee and is restrictive for ATOs; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12067/14]

This is an operational matter for SOLAS, which is responsible for the management of the scheme in question. I have referred this query to SOLAS for direct reply to the Deputy.
