[10455/02]

Minister of State at the Department of the Environment and Local Government (Mr. Molloy): Information on Robert Molloy Zoom on Robert Molloy As part of Government measures to tackle tax evasion, the payment of grants by public authorities is conditional on certain details being furnished of the contractor's C2 or tax clearance certificate. This requirement applies strictly to the payment of all housing grants by public authorities and cannot be waived in any individual case. An unsuccessful grant applicant might, in the circumstances presented, seek redress from the contractor. Details of the case might also be drawn to the attention of the semi-State body and of the Revenue Commissioners.
