Question 77: To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment if her attention has been drawn to the fact that a person (details supplied) in County Wexford did not receive a redundancy payment cheque issued by her Department; if this cheque was sent to an incorrect address; if her further attention has been drawn to the fact that the cheque was cashed but not by the addressee; the steps she will take to ensure that this claimant receives their entitlement; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department issued a cheque in respect of a lumpsum redundancy claim for the individual concerned to the address provided to the Department on the RP 50 claim form submitted. I note from the information provided by the Deputy that in fact the incorrect address was provided to the Department by the individual's former employer.

I understand that the cheque in this instance has been cashed other than by the addressee and that the individual has been in contact with the Gardai in the matter which is the appropriate course of action. Pending the outcome of the Garda investigation, my Department is not in a position to take any further action at this point.
