Dáil Éireann Debate
153. Deputy Michael McNamara asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the bonuses that were paid to the chief executive officer and the management team of the Dublin Airport Authority for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30229/11]
Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport (Deputy Leo Varadkar): The Government has made it clear to all State Agencies that performance-related bonuses in respect of chief executives are not appropriate and should not be paid in the current economic circumstances. I reiterated this point to the Chairpersons and Chief Executives of the agencies under my aegis when I met them in April of this year.
The full details of the Chief Executive Officer’s remuneration is available in the Dublin Airport annual reports. I can confirm that no bonuses have been paid to the Chief Executive Officer in respect of 2010 or 2011 performance. The payment of performance related pay to other senior management is a matter for the agency itself. I have forwarded the Deputy’s question to Dublin Airport Authority. If the Deputy does not receive a reply within ten working days, please advise my private office.
