 90. Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for Education and Science the arrangements, if any, made for paying fees expenses to participants in VEC interview boards; and the rationale for the fee structure. [14793/99]
Mr. Martin Mr. Martin
Minister for Education and Science (Mr. Martin): Participation by VEC members on selection boards is a voluntary public service. Fees are not paid to VEC members for this or other VEC activities. All members of VEC selection boards are paid appropriate expenses at standard rates. In certain circumstances my Department has approved the payment of fees charged by specialist members of selection boards who are not members of the VEC and who are not in public sector employment.
