Public Accounts Committee

Houses of the Oireachtas Commission Appropriation Account 2018

9:00 am

Mr. Peter Finnegan:

Yes. The overall figure is correct, but the breakdown is incorrect because approximately €50,000 was included in the figure at the top when it should have been included in the figure at the bottom. Claims made by employees are typically human resources-related that arise when people exercise their rights under relevant circulars. Sometimes cases end up in the Workplace Relations Commission, which means that costs have to be met for the representation of the Houses of the Oireachtas Service.
