Department of Finance
43. To ask the Minister for Finance the amount received by the Exchequer by way of dividend from commercial semi-State companies in the each of the years 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and to date in 2022 by amount and company in tabular form; the policy in respect of dividend payments to the Exchequer from commercial semi-State bodies; the way in which dividends are distributed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [46262/22]
I wish to advise the Deputy that the following dividends were received from commercial semi-State companies from 2017 to date in 2022.
Any dividends from Semi-State bodies received by the Exchequer form part of the overall revenue collected by the State. The policies relating to the payment of such dividends are detailed in the Instrument or Legislation which covers the formation of each body and, as such, would be a matter for the Minister of the relevant parent Department.
