Director fee levels approved by Government for each Agency are available on my Department's website. The Bus Éireann Chairperson and Directors are entitled to a fee payment of €21,600 and €12,600 respectively per annum. However, with effect from 1st June 2013 Bus Éireann's Chairperson and Directors fees were reduced by 20% in line with the recommendations of the Labour Relations Commission on Bus Eireann cost saving measures.  

Directors of Bus Éireann are entitled to claim expenses on a vouched basis only. I have asked Bus Éireann to provide the Deputy with details of the expenses paid to each Director per annum. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days
