Minister for Finance (Mr. Cowen): It is assumed that the Deputy is referring to stamp duty and residential property tax, RPT.

Following is the information on a revenue net receipts basis for each of the years 1997 and 2004.

RPT was abolished with effect from 5 April 1997. However, any person who had a liability to RPT prior to its abolition in 1997 has an obligation to discharge that liability, including the payment of interest.
