The payment of legal fees is a day-to-day matter for the individual Agencies concerned for which I have no direct function. I have asked all Agencies under the aegis of my Department to advise me of any legal fees paid to law firms during 2013, and I will communicate this information to the Deputy as soon as it is available.
