Dáil Éireann Debate
253. Deputy Paschal Donohoe asked the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government if he will review the non-principal private residence so that local authority departments other than the finance department can access information detailing if properties have paid the NPPR on bed-sits and other privately rented accommodation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [32411/11]
Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Phil Hogan): I presume the question refers to the use of data collected by a local authority for the purposes of its functions relating to the charge on non-principal private residences (NPPR) for other unrelated local authority functions.
Section 11 of the Local Government (Charges) Act 2009 provides for data sharing and exchange for the purposes of the NPPR. The legislation does not provide for the use of data, obtained for the purposes of the NPPR, in the performance of other functions of a local authority.
