The National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) hosts the Medical Board of Appeal on behalf of the Department of Finance and the cost of the Board has been recouped to the NRH since 2005 from the Department of Finance Vote. The Chairperson is a consultant who also works in the NRH and whose salary is recouped to the NRH.

The two doctors who attend each Appeal Board sitting with the Chairperson receive a session rate of â'¬470 per doctor per hearing, which was increased to â'¬660 per doctor per hearing in November 2007. This rate has since been reduced by 8% with effect from 1 March 2009 to â'¬607.20 in line with the Government Decision of 3 February 2009. The overall payments made to such doctors are small, for example in 2009 the total overall amount paid to all such doctors was â'¬14,572 in fees, â'¬3,978 in locum payments and â'¬1,500 in travel and expenses.

In relation to the expenses paid to members of the NTMA Advisory Committee, the National Pensions Reserve Fund Commission, the State Claims Agency Policy Committee and the Board of the National Development Finance Agency, I have been informed by the Agency that it has not been possible to assemble the information requested in the time available. I am making arrangements for the information to be provided to the Deputy as soon as possible.
