 92.  Deputy Jonathan O’Brien Information on Jonathan O'Brien Zoom on Jonathan O'Brien  asked the Taoiseach Information on Enda Kenny Zoom on Enda Kenny  if he will provide details of any office premises expenses of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions during each of the past three years; the amounts paid in rent; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [14911/12]

 97.  Deputy Jonathan O’Brien Information on Jonathan O'Brien Zoom on Jonathan O'Brien  asked the Taoiseach Information on Enda Kenny Zoom on Enda Kenny  if he will provide a breakdown of administration, non-pay related, in the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions during each of the past three years. [14916/12]

The Taoiseach: Information on Enda Kenny Zoom on Enda Kenny I propose to take Questions Nos. 89, 90, 92 and 97 together.

The information sought in Question No. 97 — administration, non-pay related — contains the expenditure details sought in the other three questions.

The Deputy has sought information on expenditure on administration, non-pay related based on the headings published in the Revised Estimated for the Public Services 2012. I would draw the Deputy’s attention to the fact that titles of administration subheads in respect of the Vote of the Office of Director of Public Prosecutions were changed in the Revised Estimate for the Public Services 2012. Expenditure is therefore shown in the table below under the old titles under which the expenditure was incurred. I would also draw the Deputy’s attention to the fact that consultancy services, which for 2012 are shown in subhead A07 (Consultancy Services and Value for Money Reviews and Policy Reviews), were accounted for under subhead A03 (Incidental Expenses) in the years 2009-2011. Expenditure on consultancy has therefore been shown under subhead A03.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions does not pay rent in respect of its buildings. The payment of rent is part of the responsibility of the Office of Public Works.
