Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
201. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform further to Parliamentary Question No. 143 of 26 February 2019, the position regarding the matter; the progress made since the reply issued; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19416/19]
I refer the Deputy to my responses to his previous questions on 3rdJuly 2018, 9thOctober 2018 and 26thFebruary 2019 in relation to this matter. As you are aware the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform can, under Section 31 of the State Property Act 1954, waive his interest in the property of a dissolved company if he thinks it would be proper to do so in all the circumstances of the case.
At the time of your most recent question, the CSSO had just received material from the representatives of Sligo County Council. Having examined that material the CSSO raised a number of queries in a letter dated 29thMarch 2019. A response to those queries is awaited.
