As the Deputy will be aware, the National Treasury Management Agency is designated as the State Claims Agency and provides claims and risk management functions in respect of the General Indemnity Scheme applying to Government Departments and other State bodies.

Details of individual personal injury pay-outs are not published as they contain information that is of a sensitive and confidential nature. However, the table below, provided by the State Claims Agency, contains aggregate amounts in respect of the claims that have been finalised against my Department and its agencies, including personal injury claims.

The material provided covers the amounts paid during the period 2016 to 2018, and are in respect of all payments made over the lifecycle of the claims. As figures are compiled retrospectively, information with respect to 2019 is not yet available.
