A statement from RTÉ said the broadcaster "declines the request for a copy of the former Director General's contract

The Chair of the Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee has said it is "disappointing" they have not received documents from RTÉ relating to exit packages and contracts of some of the broadcaster's executives.

More than 160 internal documents were disclosed to the committee, including a lengthy chronology relating to presenter Ryan Tubridy's last RTÉ contract.

Brian Stanley said that while the committee has received a substantial number of documents from RTÉ, he expressed concern over documents they did not receive.

A statement from RTÉ said the broadcaster "declines the request for a copy of the former Director General's contract of employment on the basis that relevant details of the former Director General’s terms of employment have been provided already".

"If there is a particular question or issue or concern of the Committee that can only be assisted by reference to those terms of employment, RTÉ will reconsider and/or provide a copy of such terms, as necessary."

The organisation has told the PAC that it will not supply any details of a financial exit package negotiated with Ms O'Leary, as it is "precluded from providing personal information because of legal and contractual obligations."
