Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism
Question 83: To ask the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism further to the reply of 27 January 2005 in respect of the use of credit cards in his Department, the total expenditure involved and the various transactions covered by credit card payment during the period in question; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5485/05]
I indicated in my reply to Parliamentary Question No. 114 on 27 January 2005 that all charges incurred on credit cards issued to officials of my Department are the personal responsibility of the individual cardholder. As such, the Department has no responsibility for the charges incurred and consequently does not have records available on the overall usage of these cards.
