Rehab Group board to meet next month

Rehab Group CEO Angela Kerins

The board of Rehab has said it will hold a meeting next month to consider whether to reveal the salary of CEO Angela Kerins.

The meeting is due to take place on February 17.

Chairman of the Rehab Group Brian Kerr says the remuneration of the CEO is a matter for the Rehab Group board - and since the last voluntary disclosure of her salary in April 2011, there has been no formal request from any relevant authority to do so again.

However, he says he understands the public interest and to ensure that all directors and advisors of the Rehab Group are available, this meeting will be scheduled for February 17.

In a statement issued this evening, Mr Kerr says the matter is one for the Board - not Ms Kerins - and some of the pressure that's been placed on her and her family has been entirely unfair and very personal.

Meanwhile, Mr Kerr is calling on the Taoiseach to remove the prize cap on charitable lotteries, which would allow them to compete with the National Lottery and other lotteries operating in Europe.
