George Lee's questions

By | 5th February 2010

Dail newbie George Lee has been asking lots of awkward questions. One of his more recent ones has led to a bit of an information dump by the Department of Finance. Mr Lee asked:

Question 205: To ask the Minister for Finance the names and addresses of all nominees to bodies or agencies under the remit of his Department that were appointed since 26 June 1997, detailing by whom they were appointed; when they were appointed; the amount paid by the Exchequer to each nominee each year from 1997 to 2009 broken down into income, expenses, overtime and any other relevant category; the money paid by his Department each year from 1997 to 2009 to cover expenses or incidentals related to the nominees, such as accommodation, travel and so on; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5662/10]

To which Mr Lenihan provided quite an extensive reply. Maurice Ahern and Leonie Reynolds are two names that stand out for me. Comments please with extra info.

      Seems to be a different Noel Whelan, Jim. I thought the same myself when I first read the list but it doesn’t appear to be the case after looking a little further into the name… the one on the list is an academic from – I think – NUIG.
