Dáil Éireann Debate
775. Deputy Patrick Nulty asked the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government if forcing local authority employees to participate in the collection of the household charge contravenes the terms of the Croke Park Agreement; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18002/12]
Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Phil Hogan): Under section 159 of the Local Government Act 2001, each City and County Manager is responsible for staffing and organisational arrangements necessary for carrying out the functions of the local authorities for which he or she is responsible.
I understand that local authority staff have carried out all functions required in relation to the administration of the Household Charge and no issues have been raised under the mechanisms of the Croke Park Agreement.
