[19549/12]

Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Phil Hogan): Information on Philip Hogan Zoom on Philip Hogan The Local Development Companies referred to in the Question are independent companies with their own board of management and memorandum and articles of association. My Department has no role in the internal operations of Local Development Companies and, therefore, does not have a role in relation to staff or employment matters, which are for the Board of the company as the employer, to manage. There are 11 Local Development Companies in the catchment area referred to. The salaries for the Chief Executive Officers of these companies ranged from just under €75,000 to some €95,000 at the end of 2011. The average salary was some €86,000. There have been no individual salary increases in 2012. The employer pension contribution amounted to an additional 10% of the salary. The data in relation to expenses are not readily available; however, I will arrange to have information relating to the programmes funded by my Department forwarded to the Deputy. There is no Deputy Chief Executive post within the companies.
