DEPARTMENT OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT: OVERPAYMENT TO MESSENGER.
An Coiste um Chuntais Phoiblí.
On attending the Committee on the 18th instant, I was asked to furnish further details relating to the writing off of £66 overpaid to a temporary Messenger in respect of a period of sick leave. On the medical diagnosis submitted, the man in question was entitled to rates of sick pay higher than normal rates. At the end of the period of sick leave the Chief Medical Officer advised that there had been a wrong diagnosis.
The note in the Appropriation Account indicates the decision taken and the reason therefore.
