  28.  Mr. Gilmore  Information on Eamon Gilmore  Zoom on Eamon Gilmore   asked the Minister for Labour  Information on Bertie Ahern  Zoom on Bertie Ahern   if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the £5 weekly fuel voucher is not paid to social employment scheme workers outside of Dublin; if he will extend this payment to all social employment scheme workers; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Labour (Mr. B. Ahern): Information on Bertie Ahern  Zoom on Bertie Ahern  I am aware that SES participants do not qualify for fuel vouchers under the national fuel scheme.
