I assume that the Deputy is referring to appointments to boards of State bodies under the aegis of my Department.

There has been one new appointment made by me to a State board since 22nd November 2010. This was an appointment to the board of Bord Gáis Éireann on 23rd November 2010 as follows:

BodyNumber of new appointments since 22/11/10Annual amount of fee dueSelection ProcessTerm
Bord Gáis Éireann1€15,750Ministerial appointment under relevant statuteUp to 5 years

The payment of expenses to directors of boards is a day to day operational matter for each body in line with the relevant Department of Finance guidelines.
