Ceisteanna (526)

Mattie McGrath

Ceist:

526. Deputy Mattie McGrath asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if Turas Nua is a private limited company; the payments made to Turas Nua to operate its contract with her Department; the period of time over which these payments have been made; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [20805/18]

Turas Nua is a joint venture between FRS Recruitment and Working Links.

Turas Nua is registered with the Companies Registration Office as Turas Nua Ltd., Registration No: 3344143VH and for which Tax Clearance Certificates have been issued.

It is not intended to publish the individual payments to the JobPath companies as these are commercially sensitive and to do so would place the State at a disadvantage both in terms of the contracts now in place and any future procurement that may be undertaken.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
