Written Answers. - Tax Code.

Deputy Catherine Byrne asked the Minister for Finance if he plans to publish the report of the taxation commission immediately after its presentation to Government; the expected date of publication; and if he proposes institutional arrangements for the implementation of these proposals. [19023/09]

  Deputy Brian Lenihan: The report of the Commission on Taxation is due to be presented to the Government in July and will be published shortly thereafter. The terms of reference of the Commission on Taxation are broadly defined, far reaching and allow for consideration of all aspects of the Irish taxation system. The work of the Commission will help establish the framework within which tax policy will be set for the next decade at least. As the Commission has not yet finalised their report, it would be inappropriate at this stage to disclose any institutional arrangements for the implementation of any proposals put forward in the Commission’s report.
