Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
State Claims Agency
100. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if dossiers similar to that exposed in a programme (details supplied) have been compiled and held by the State Claims Agency on any other person or groups of persons involved in legal actions; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17864/21]
While I acknowledge the Deputy’s question, I wish to advise that questions relating to the State Claims Agency (SCA) are a matter for the Minister for Finance to respond to it in the first instance.
The NTMA is a State body which provides asset and liability management services to Government and is designated as the State Claims Agency when performing the claims management, risk management and legal cost management functions delegated to it under the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2000 and the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2014. It operates under the aegis of the Minister for Finance. Accordingly, I would suggest that the Deputy refers questions related to the State Claims Agency to the Minister for Finance in the first instance.
