Department of Agriculture and Food
Martin Ferris (Kerry North, Sinn Fein)
Question 232: To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the cost of subsistence and travel paid to each member of the Sea Fisheries Protection Authority [36588/10]
Brendan Smith (Minister, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food; Cavan-Monaghan, Fianna Fail)
The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority is an independent statutory authority and hence the internal financial management is a matter for the Authority in which the Minister does not have a role. However, the Department has forwarded the request to the SFPA for its consideration and for a direct reply to the Deputy.
