Minister for Finance (Mr. McCreevy): Information on Charlie McCreevy Zoom on Charlie McCreevy I am informed by the Revenue Commissioners that, in accordance with Section 94(3)(b) of the Finance Act, 2000, an order was made on 19 March 2002 prescribing 1 January 1994 as the earlier date referred to in that section under which a refund of excise duty may be claimed in respect of diesel used in the provision of eligible road passenger services or school bus services.
