National Lottery

Derek Keating

Question:

119 Deputy Derek Keating asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his plans to advertise the sale of the National Lottery; the date on which he will inform Dáil Éireann of the protections he will put in place in the advertisement to ensure that the lottery’s success over the years is maintained and that the local traders in small businesses and small shops will retain the payment of 6% commissions; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20005/12]

Derek Keating

Question:

121 Deputy Derek Keating asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his plans to advertise the sale of the National Lottery; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20004/12]

Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin

Question:

132 Deputy Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the amount of the upfront payment from the new National Lottery licence that will be allocated to the National Children’s Hospital project. [20302/12]

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

140 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if the National Lottery licence contract will include a clause committing the new operator to maintaining the current good cause funding of 30% of sales as committed to by him earlier this month. [20303/12]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 119, 121, 132 and 140 together.

As the Deputies are aware, I announced on 4 April 2012 that the Government has decided to hold a competition for the next National Lottery licence and that the licence will be for a 20 year period.

The new licence will involve an upfront payment to the State, with some of the payment being used to help fund the building of the proposed new National Children's Hospital.

Deputies will appreciate that in advance of the competition, it is not possible to say how much the upfront payment will be or indeed how much of it will be allocated to help fund the building of the proposed new Children's Hospital.

The ongoing provision of a fixed percentage of annual lottery turnover for good causes will be a condition of the licence. The Government has decided that this percentage is to be retained at 30.5% which was the level that was achieved in 2011.

In accordance with the indicative timetable for the award of the licence, an Invitation for Expressions of Interest in Applying for the National Lottery Licence would be published in August and an Invitation to Apply for the Licence would be published in October. I would like to assure the Deputies that the terms of the competition will be framed in such a way as to ensure that the National Lottery will continue the high standards that it has maintained since its establishment in the mid-1980s.

In relation to retail outlets authorised to sell National Lottery tickets, I am cognisant of the essential role which retailers play in the operation of the Lottery. I am also aware of the importance to retailers of income from the Lottery, particularly in the present economic climate. I can assure the Deputies that the position of retailers will be taken into consideration in the context of the arrangements for the next Lottery licence.

Public Service Remuneration

Peadar Tóibín

Question:

120 Deputy Peadar Tóibín asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his views on the Institute of Public Administrations finding in its research paper Public Sector Trends 2011 that remuneration for senior management in the public sector is 7.7 times the remuneration of secretaries in comparison to Nordic countries where the remuneration for senior managers is 3.5 times the remuneration of secretaries; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20301/12]

While comparisons of public servants' pay rates across different countries are difficult to achieve on a "like for like" basis, the best available figures are those published by the OECD as part of its "Government at a Glance 2010" report. I understand it is this data which the Public Sector Trends 2011 research paper draws upon for its conclusions in relation to international pay comparisons.

The statistics on which the OECD based its report predate the pay reductions applied on a progressive basis to all public servants, under the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (No. 2) Act 2010. The pay reductions applied to higher paid public servants under that legislation were based on the recommendations of the Review Body on Higher Remuneration in the Public Sector, which conducted a cross-country comparative exercise on pay rates for certain senior grades. On foot of that, the then Government cut the pay of the highest paid public servants by between 8% and 20%. In contrast, reductions in pay that applied to lower paid staff would have ranged between 5% and 5.5% approximately. It is important to note that the OECD data does not show Irish public service pay rates to be significantly out of line with other OECD countries across a broad range of disciplines on a purchasing power parity basis even though the data predates the implementation of the pay cuts.

The current Government, based on proposals put forward by me in June 2011, imposed further significant reductions in higher level pay in the public service. By way of illustration, taking account of the pension related deduction and the pay reductions applied cumulatively to the gross salaries of the comparative grades of Secretary General and Clerical Officer between March 09 and June 2011, the reductions effected amount to 32% at Secretary General II (40% at Secretary General I) Level but at clerical officer the level of reduction amounts to less than 9%. This excludes the impact of additional tax increases that apply to all workers in the economy which are also progressive.

I believe the Government has demonstrated a significant track record since coming to office of addressing higher remuneration rates in the public service including by way of referendum and will continue to ensure that the burden of fiscal adjustment, including the adjustment required in the pay bill, will be shared fairly across all income levels.

Question No. 121 answered with Question No. 119.

Departmental Expenditure

Timmy Dooley

Question:

122 Deputy Timmy Dooley asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will outline the changes from the draft estimates for all Government expenditure as published by his Department on 5 December 2012 that have been included in the Revised Estimates; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20269/12]

The table below sets out the difference between the net current and capital expenditure positions extracted from the Comprehensive Expenditure Report 2012-2014, published on 5 December 2011 and the Revised Estimates for Public Services 2012, published on 23 February 2012. The overall change is a reduction of €1.38 million or 0.003%.

The individual changes to Departmental allocations can be summarised as technical adjustments arising from transfer of functions between Vote Groups and the distribution of €20 million from the unallocated contingency fund for EU Presidency set-up costs.

Public Service Reform

Charlie McConalogue

Question:

123 Deputy Charlie McConalogue asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his views on the progress being made across Government Departments and agencies to avail of the benefits of shared services and related cost savings; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20277/12]

Shared services is a core element of the Public Service Reform agenda which is being driven by my Department. Given the scale of the reform challenge facing us and the increasing demand for Public Services, it is vital that we begin to deliver back-office business processes at a higher service quality.

The Public Service Reform Plan published in November 2011 sets out aggressive timelines for the delivery of shared services across the Public Service. Together with my colleagues in Government, I am committed to the delivery of this significant transformation initiative in a planned way and on the basis of international best practice. This is the only way that meaningful, medium-term savings can be achieved. A National Shared Services Office, led by a Shared Service Transformation Manager with a strong track record in delivering on these types of projects at a global level, has now been established within my Department.

Significant work has been undertaken over recent months to prepare the business case for human resources shared services and it is expected to be presented to Government shortly. Expressions of interest have been sought for the post of Civil Service payroll shared services project manager and the Shared Services Office are also commencing a data gathering exercise to better understand our current payroll arrangements and how they compare with other public and private sector organisations who utilise shared service centres. Rigorous and detailed design leads to good solutions so the ‘preparation work' is essential to ensure that the shared services operations will deliver services at high standards, that business as usual is not jeopardised and that benefits are delivered. The Shared Services Office is also working with nominated senior officials to ensure that similarly ambitious and robust plans are developed and implemented in the other key sectors of Health, Education, Justice, Defence and Local Government.

I am satisfied with the progress we are making in this area. We are building the appropriate expertise and engaging with each of the key Departments in a structured way and on the basis of a strong plan, evidence based business cases and ambitious timelines. The international evidence shows that this is the best way to proceed if you want to realise the maximum benefits over time.

Public Service Remuneration

Thomas P. Broughan

Question:

124 Deputy Thomas P. Broughan asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the measures being taken to review the salary level of senior management in bodies and agencies that are the recipients of public money in grant aid; if he is considering measures to promote a cap on the salaries of senior management in such bodies and agencies; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20006/12]

I refer to my reply to Question No. 2856/12 of 18 January 2012.

Flood Relief

Éamon Ó Cuív

Question:

125 Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the number of flood relief initiatives that will be undertaken in 2012 and the associated costs; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20284/12]

The Office of Public Works undertakes a number of flood relief initiatives in any year under programmes, which, in some cases, are delivered directly through its own resources and in other cases are delivered in conjunction with other agencies such as local authorities. The principal programmes are:

1. Major Capital Works Schemes;

2. Minor Coastal and Non-Coastal Schemes;

3. National Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management (CFRAM) Studies;

4. Arterial Drainage Maintenance.

The total allocation included in the OPW's Vote in 2012 for the above flood relief programmes is €60.78m.

Under its Major Capital Works Programme, the OPW currently has nine major flood relief schemes at construction stage. It is expected that another six schemes will commence construction before the end of 2012, subject to completion of procurement and other preparatory formalities and availability of funding. There are also a further 11 schemes at various stages of design and planning. Approximately €29 million is expected to be expended on all of these schemes during the course of the year.

Under the Minor Works and Coastal Protection Scheme, the OPW provides funding to local authorities for smaller scale, more localised mitigation measures they wish to undertake in their areas. It is open to any local authority to submit an application to the OPW for funding under the scheme. The standard application forms, guidelines and eligibility criteria, are available on the OPW website. Each application will be assessed in accordance with the criteria now in place and having regard to the overall availability of financial resources for such works in 2012. To date this year, funding of almost €1.5m has been approved under the Scheme for 13 local authorities in respect of 36 projects. Total funding of €21.4m was approved in 2010 and 2011 combined, for 32 local authorities in respect of 265 projects.

The relevant local authority is responsible for the procurement, planning, detailed financial management and day-to-day implementation of all aspects of the projects approved under the Scheme. Local authorities are continuing to undertake a number of the projects approved in 2010 and 2011 and are expected to commence further projects in 2012.

In addition to the specific flood relief works, the OPW will continue in 2012 with a major national initiative to systematically identify, assess, document and report on the most significant flood risks throughout the country. This work is being undertaken on the OPW's behalf by specialist consultants and is organised into six separate regional or catchment areas. These assessments, which are known as CFRAM studies, will recommend an integrated management plan and prioritised measures to address flood problems in areas where there is significant risk in each major catchment in the country.

Under the arterial drainage maintenance programme, the OPW will continue in 2012 to undertake ongoing maintenance of completed arterial drainage and flood relief schemes.

Public Service Staff

Catherine Murphy

Question:

126 Deputy Catherine Murphy asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will provide full details of the total approved public service staffing intake and projected public service staffing intake for 2012, across all Government Departments and State agencies in respect of new hires outside the usual terms of the current public service recruitment embargo; if he will provide details of all requests, successful, unsuccessful and pending, made to him from the various Government Departments and State agencies in respect of the same; if he will specifically highlight within these figures all new hires related to Ireland’s EU presidency next year; the total cost to the Exchequer in respect of all such recruitment; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20256/12]

The Employment Control Framework (ECF) for 2012 set a ceiling of 294,400 on public service staffing numbers by the end of this year. This will allow scope for some targeted recruitment of up to 3,000 in 2012 so as to address needs in key areas of front-line services, particularly in the Health and Education Sectors and other strategic requirements including the EU presidency in 2013.

The data sought by the Deputy on requests for moratorium exceptions for 2012 is being compiled and will be forwarded to her shortly.

In relation to Ireland's forthcoming Presidency of the EU in the first 6 months of 2013, the Government has provided up to €10 million this year for additional staffing costs in the lead-up period. Departments can meet their temporary additional Presidency staffing needs in a number of ways including the temporary taking on of extra personnel (e.g. via redeployment/secondment, interns, hiring of specialist skills) on appropriate terms and conditions. No permanent hiring of new staff is envisaged for the EU presidency.

Sale of State Assets

Richard Boyd Barrett

Question:

127 Deputy Richard Boyd Barrett asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the way he intends to proceed with the planned sale of State assets; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20292/12]

Martin Ferris

Question:

131 Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the time frame his Department is working to with regard to its schedule for the disposal of State assets. [20299/12]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 127 and 131 together.

I am happy to report to the House that significant progress has been made on advancing the asset disposal programme that I announced last February. A number of inter-departmental working groups have been established to examine each of the assets referred to in my announcement and NewERA has prepared two very thorough financial reports on BGE and Coillte which have now been considered by their respective working groups.

The Government is committed under the EU/ECB/IMF Funding Programme to outlining in detail for the troika, by the end of the second quarter (end June 2012), the specific regulatory, legislative, corporate governance and financial reforms which need to be taken in 2012, ensuring consistency with relevant EU legislation where necessary, to allow for the asset sale programme to proceed in 2013, and a calendar with indicative timelines for sales will be set out. The issues requiring resolution having already been identified by the end of the first quarter, work is continuing now in the relevant Departments and agencies on considering how they should be addressed in order to facilitate the launch of sale transactions in 2013.

Public Service Staff

John McGuinness

Question:

128 Deputy John McGuinness asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform his plans to change the current arrangements in respect of notice period for persons wishing to leave the public service; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20282/12]

A three month notice period was introduced as a temporary measure to assist management across the public service in dealing with the large number of retirements of staff in the run up to the end of the "grace period"— i.e. the period during which the calculation of pension was unaffected by the pay reductions applied under the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (No. 2) Act 2009.

In order to protect public services it was critical that management in each of the sectors had knowledge of the numbers of staff retiring and the business areas that might be affected by potentially large scale departures.

While the specific circumstances of the "grace period" resulted in a higher number of retirements than would normally occur, it remains critical that management know when key staff will be leaving their organisation.

In addition, we are required under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding with the EU/ECB/IMF to make quarterly returns on the progress being made in relation to reductions in numbers in the public service. Accurate and early information on forthcoming retirements is an important input and it provides us with information on whether the reduction in the public service pay bill arising from impending retirements is sufficient to meet Ireland's commitments under the Memorandum of Understanding.

In light of this it is my intention to issue a revised instruction in relation to notice requirements for retirements and resignations in the civil service shortly. Discussions have commenced with the civil service unions on the introduction of a formalised required notice period. The question of senior civil servants and key personnel giving longer notice is also being examined.

Public Service Reform

Pádraig Mac Lochlainn

Question:

129 Deputy Pádraig Mac Lochlainn asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if the Secretary General of his Department has written to all other secretaries general asking them to publish on their website the quarterly purchase orders for goods and services of more than €20,000; the measures of enforcement he intends to pursue to ensure that all Departments publish these figures. [20305/12]

As the Deputy will be aware there is a commitment in the Public Service Reform Plan that every Purchase Order by a Government Department or Agency for €20,000 or over should be published online by the end of 2012.

My Secretary General wrote to all Secretaries General on March 27th, asking that they put appropriate processes in place to ensure that this ambitious target is met.

The Reform and Delivery Office was established in my Department to oversee and drive the Public Service Reform programme. While reform cannot be micro-managed from the Centre, the Office, through its governance structures, monitors the implementation of the Public Service Reform Plan, as well as organisational and sectoral reforms set out in the Integrated Reform Delivery Plans of Departments and major Offices. As part of this process, the Reform and Delivery Office receives progress updates on a regular basis and reports on this progress to the Cabinet Committee on Public Service Reform, which meets on a quarterly basis. Where it is felt that sufficient progress is not being made in a particular area, action will be taken to assess the situation and to provide impetus and support for implementation, if required.

Question No. 130 answered with Question No. 118.
Question No. 131 answered with Question No. 127.
Question No. 132 answered with Question No. 119.

Sale of State Assets

Martin Ferris

Question:

133 Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform when the schedule of State assets to be sold will be published. [20298/12]

I would draw the Deputy's attention to my announcement of February 22 last in which I outlined the shape and scale of the asset disposal programme that is to be pursued.

In brief, the programme that was agreed by Government in February consists of:

The sale of Bord Gáis Éireann's energy business (but not including BGÉ's gas transmission or distribution systems or the two gas interconnectors, which will remain in State ownership);

The sale of some of ESB's non-strategic power generation capacity.

Consideration is also being given to the sale of some assets of Coillte, but not Coillte's land holdings; and the sale of the State's remaining shareholding in Aer Lingus, when market conditions are favourable and at an acceptable price to Government.

Under the EU/ECB/IMF Funding Programme, the Government is committed to outlining in detail for the Troika, by the end of the second quarter (end June 2012), the specific regulatory, legislative, corporate governance and financial reforms which need to be taken in 2012, ensuring consistency with relevant EU legislation where necessary, to allow for the asset sale programme to proceed in 2013, and a calendar with indicative timelines for sales will be set out at that point.

Public Service Staff

Mary Lou McDonald

Question:

134 Deputy Mary Lou McDonald asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will revoke the awarding of added years and special severance gratuity payments to current secretaries general. [20294/12]

As I previously advised the Deputy in my reply to Parliamentary Question number 81 on 28 February (ref. 11208/12), Secretaries General appointed under the TLAC process have exit arrangements which are part of their terms of employment following a Government decision at the time of appointment.

The Government revised the arrangements in October 2011 to apply to Secretaries General newly appointed thereafter. Under the revised terms, newly appointed Secretaries General will no longer benefit from immediate payment of pension and lump sum at the end of their term (unless they have already reached pension age); nor will they benefit from notional added years for pension purposes. These are significant changes to the terms which applied to previous appointees, which included the offer of an alternative post in the Public Service or a severance payment and immediate retirement on an enhanced pension.

The previous terms still apply to currently serving Secretaries General who were appointed under those terms, as the terms form part of their terms of employment. As I said in my previous reply, the advice of the Office of the Attorney General is that the Government does not have discretion to change those terms.

I would also like to remind the Deputy that a number of pension-related measures have been implemented in the Public Service which affect Secretaries General. The pay reductions introduced since 2010 will impact on the pension benefits of those retiring after 1 March 2012 onwards. The pensions of those who retired before that date were subject to the Public Service Pension Reduction (PSPR) introduced in January 2011. I also recently provided for an increase in the rate of PSPR applicable to pensions over €100,000 from 12% to 20% which will affect Secretaries General on pension above that level.

Finally, the Public Service Pensions (Single Scheme) and Remuneration Bill to provide for a Single Public Service Pension Scheme is currently before the Oireachtas and will be implemented this year. It will introduce a pension based on career average earnings, rather than the current system of pension based on final salary, for those who will be members of the scheme.

Public Service Remuneration

Peadar Tóibín

Question:

135 Deputy Peadar Tóibín asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if the implementation body has reviewed high pay in the public sector during its annual review consultations this year. [20300/12]

I refer to my reply to Parliamentary Question Nos. 11220 and 11222 of 28 February 2012.

Political Funding

Catherine Murphy

Question:

136 Deputy Catherine Murphy asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will summarise the changes which have taken place to the political funding regime so far during the 31st Dáil, including all changes made to any means of State support for political activities whether by primary legislation, statutory instrument or other means; if he will articulate his plans for reform in this area; when primary legislation in respect of such reforms may be expected; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20255/12]

Aside from salaries and other allowances in the nature of pay, there are three main ways that political activity is funded by the taxpayer, namely the amounts provided to political parties and independent representatives by way of the Party Leader's Allowance and under the Electoral Acts, and the allowances paid to members of each House in respect of their duties as public representatives and in respect of free travelling and other facilities in accordance with Article 15.15 of the Constitution.

The Party Leader's Allowance is provided for in the Oireachtas (Ministerial and Parliamentary Offices) Act 1938, as amended by the Oireachtas (Ministerial and Parliamentary Offices (Amendment) Act 2001.

The allowance is paid to the parliamentary leader of a qualifying party in relation to expenses arising from the parliamentary activities, including research, of the party. Payments are made in respect of members of the party elected to Dáil Éireann and members elected/nominated to Seanad Éireann at the last preceding general election, or a subsequent by-election or, in the case of Seanad Éireann, nominated to it after the last preceding general election. The conditions governing calculation of and entitlement to payment of the allowance are set out in the Act. The primary restriction in the Act on the use of the allowance is that it may not be used in respect of election expenses.

The legislation also provides that payments may be made to a member of Dáil Éireann, who at the last preceding general election or at a subsequent by-election was elected as a member other than as a member of a qualifying party. Such qualifying Independent TDs are entitled to an annual rate of €41,152. A similar provision in the Act provides for an annual payment of €23,383 for Independent Senators.

I intend to bring proposals to Government shortly in relation to reviewing the Allowance. Any change proposed following that review will require primary legislation to be prepared.

Responsibility for the Electoral Acts is a matter for my colleague, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government.

Under the Electoral Acts, provision is made for two payments to be made to qualifying political parties. Section 50(c)(ii)(I)(a) of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 2001, provides for an annual sum of €4.948 million to be shared among qualified political parties. Payments are calculated on the basis of the share of first preference votes obtained by an individual qualified party at the previous general election. Section 50(c)(i)(a) of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 2001, also provides for an annual payment in each period of 12 months to each qualified party of €126,973.81.

The Electoral (Amendment) (Political Funding) Bill 2011 which is currently before the Houses of the Oireachtas provides for a number of changes to the Electoral Acts, including provision for decreases, as well as increases, in civil service pay to be applied in future to the fund disbursed annually to qualified political parties under Part 3 of the Electoral Act 1997.

In addition, Section 5 of the Electoral (Amendment) Act 2011, enacted in July 2011, provided for a reduction in the maximum amount that can be reimbursed to a qualifying candidate at a Presidential election from €260,000 to €200,000.

Oireachtas Members can avail of the Parliamentary Standard Allowance, provided for under section 3 of the Oireachtas (Allowances to Members) and Ministerial and Parliamentary Offices Act, 2009 which has two elements: a Travel and accommodation allowance and Public Representation Allowance.

From 1 February 2012, occasional additional secretarial support as well as public relations, certain information technology and training services was included within the scope of this allowance. This change was effected by the provisions of Statutory Instrument No. 37 of 2012. The expenditure limits for this allowance remains unchanged.

In addition Statutory Instrument No. 328 of 2011 reduced the number of pre-paid envelopes available to members as follows from 1 July 2011:

Deputies: reduced from 1,500 per month to 1,250 per month;

Senators: reduced from 1,000 per month to 750 per month.

The estimated savings of this change was €0.152m in 2011 and €0.36m in a full year.

Finally, additional supports to the activities of members of each House, including secretarial assistance, are provided directly to members of each House under the auspices of the Oireachtas Commission. Since 2004, the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission has been financed from the Central Fund. The Houses of the Oireachtas Commission Act is amended every three years to provide for Oireachtas funding allocation for the following three years. The legislation is also amended as necessary to update finance, staffing, and governance procedures. It is envisaged that amending legislation will be enacted before the end of 2012.

Pension Provisions

Brian Stanley

Question:

137 Deputy Brian Stanley asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if following his decision to change the pension entitlements of new entrant secretaries general, he will consider applying the similar changes to new entrant city and county managers. [20307/12]

The Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government has examined the new pension terms for Secretaries General to assess how they apply to City and County Managers. It has submitted detailed proposals to my Department which are currently being examined. The implementation of new pension terms for Managers will require legislation. This legislation is the responsibility of the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government.

Departmental Expenditure

Bernard J. Durkan

Question:

138 Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the extent to which public expenditure overruns noticeable or apparent over the past five years have been corrected to date without excessive damage to the quality and scale of services; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20254/12]

As the Deputy is aware we have faced very challenging economic and fiscal conditions over the past five years. During that period officials in my Department have rigorously monitored all current and capital spending on a month by month basis to identify potential overruns.

It is essential that the Government keeps a tight reign on all areas of spending and I have introduced a range of measures to address the economic and budgetary challenges which we are facing.

While good progress has been made on delivering savings and implementing change, it remains a matter for each Minister and their Departments to ensure that the Vote-level allocations are adhered to and at the same time ensure that they continue to provide essential frontline services and respond to increasing demands.

Public Infrastructure Investment

Pearse Doherty

Question:

139 Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if following his commitments in the Infrastructure and Capital Investment 2012-2016 Medium Term Exchequer Framework he will provide an update on his on-going engagement with potential private sector investors. [20304/12]

Public infrastructure is funded primarily in two ways at the moment: Exchequer financing (the vast bulk of funding) and PPP-sourced funding for particular projects that are suited to the PPP approach while providing value for money for the State. The Exchequer capital programme for the next five years has been set at €17 billion. This will represent significant continued Exchequer investment in the maintenance of valuable infrastructure and the creation of new assets — especially for new schools and healthcare provision.

I am very keen that we look at how we can use private sector funding to supplement our Exchequer investment. As the Deputy will be aware, PPPs have been used in Ireland for over a decade, mostly in schools and roads projects — where they give value for money and are affordable. The global credit crunch has had a significant impact on the PPP funding market which has, in turn, had significant negative consequences for delivery of PPPs. My Department is actively exploring the potential to unlock additional monies to supplement bank funding. A range of potential solutions are being explored including domestic pension funds, the NPRF/SIF and new EU financial instruments. Direct dialogue with representatives of pension funds has intensified and is looking promising. Dialogue is now focusing in on how deals could be structured to encourage pension funds to provide debt funding for new infrastructure projects.

My Department is also having useful discussions with the NPRF and the investment managers of the Irish Infrastructure Fund, a sub-fund of the Strategic Investment Fund, about projects they might invest in. The NPRF has already agreed to fund a water metering programme and may commit further monies for investment in Irish PPPs. My Department is working with the Funds to identify potential projects that could be supported should a source of funding become available.

My Department is also examining, in conjunction with other Departments, how new Financial Instruments and other EU support mechanisms could help us to access private funding. We are actively engaging with European Institutions to see what assistance might be available to us including co-financing for PPP projects and loans from the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) for Exchequer funded projects; such funding would not be additional to that envisaged in the Medium Term Investment Framework but would provide funding on more favourable terms than are otherwise available to the State.

Unemployment Statistics

Martin Ferris

Question:

142 Deputy Martin Ferris asked the Taoiseach if he will provide on a county basis a breakdown of unemployment statistics for each year since 2006. [20415/12]

The Quarterly National Household Survey (QNHS) is the official source of estimates of unemployment in the State. Due to methodology and sample size it is not possible to produce reliable county level estimates from the QNHS. The Live Register series gives a monthly breakdown of the number of persons claiming Jobseekers Benefit, Jobseekers Allowance and Other Registrants as registered with the Department of Social Protection.

The Live Register is not a definitive measure of unemployment as it includes part-time workers (those who work up to three days a week), and seasonal and casual workers entitled to Jobseekers Benefit or Allowance. However as it is a register rather than a sample survey County level totals are available from the Live Register.

The table below shows the average number of persons on the Live Register by County for each of the years from 2006 to 2011:

Departmental Expenditure

Maureen O'Sullivan

Question:

144 Deputy Maureen O’Sullivan asked the Taoiseach if he will publish a schedule of payments made from public funds to a multinational bracket investment banking and securities firm (details supplied) in the period from 1 September 2008 to date in 2012, with notes confirming the basis of each individual payment made; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Ministerial Travel

Sandra McLellan

Question:

145 Deputy Sandra McLellan asked the Taoiseach the cost incurred by his Department, for 2012 overseas travel programme for St. Patrick’s Day, which saw him and eight Ministers heading abroad for the holiday; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17596/12]

The St. Patrick's Day period offers an unparalleled and unique global opportunity to showcase Ireland and to bring the message that Ireland is open for business to all our key global markets and to Ireland's many friends around the world. The importance of Ministerial visits during this period cannot be underestimated in terms of our economic recovery and delivery of foreign direct investment to Ireland. During my visit to the United States I met with President Obama, Vice President Biden, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and many political leaders. I addressed a number of high profile events including the Ireland Fund dinner in Washington, and including a joint EI/IDA business lunch.

The costs incurred by my Department to date in respect of the 2012 St. Patrick's Day overseas travel programme are detailed in the following table. The total costs of the visit have not yet been finalised. Invoices will be submitted in due course through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for reimbursement by my Department, and will include hotel costs; car hire; and other miscellaneous costs.

Constitutional Convention

Patrick O'Donovan

Question:

153 Deputy Patrick O’Donovan asked the Taoiseach if he has considered including members of the Irish diaspora as part of the Constitutional Convention; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19755/12]

The Government's proposals for the Constitutional Convention, including in relation to the selection of citizens to participate in the work of the Convention, have been made public on www.merrionstreet.ie.

I met representatives of the Opposition parties and the Dáil Technical Group to consult them on the Government's proposals and they have reverted to me with their views.

The Government will now consider these views and intends to introduce Resolutions in both Houses of the Oireachtas in the current session to establish the Convention .

Abolition of Seanad

Eoghan Murphy

Question:

154 Deputy Eoghan Murphy asked the Taoiseach the time frame for the abolition of Seanad Éireann [19756/12]

Work is proceeding on the preparation of proposals for a referendum on the abolition of the Seanad. The proposal to abolish the Seanad is contained in the Programme for Government and the Dáil and Seanad will have an opportunity to fully debate the necessary legislation when it is published.

It is intended that the referendum on abolition of the Seanad will take place as soon as practicable, consistent with the Government's other referendum commitments.

Departmental Correspondence

Sean Fleming

Question:

155 Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Taoiseach when he will reply to correspondence dated 2 of March 2012 and 13 March 2012 from a person (details supplied) in County Laois; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19757/12]

As in the case of my predecessors, I have no official responsibility to the Dáil in respect of the correspondence I receive. I receive a great deal of correspondence from individuals and organisations on a wide variety of topics beyond my Department's area of responsibility and receipt of correspondence does not of itself render me answerable to the House on such topics.

Parliamentary Questions

Sean Fleming

Question:

156 Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Taoiseach the number of written Parliamentary Questions replied to from 1 January to the 31 March 2012 and if he will outline the number of these that were answered in full, the number that related to issues in which details were supplied/personal matters and in which the reply was supplied directly to the Deputy; the number of other replies in which it was indicated that the information requested would be sent directly to the Deputy concerned; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19759/12]

I answered 116 written questions between 1 January and 31 March 2012. In only one case did the reply indicate that the information would be provided to the Deputy as soon as possible and that information has now been forwarded to the Deputy.

Question No. 157 answered with Question No. 151.

Consultancy Contracts

Departmental Bodies

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

160 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the Office of the Chief State Solicitor spent €540,795.78 on telephones during 2009, 2010 and 2011; if he views this cost as excessive; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19764/12]

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

161 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the number of telephones that were purchased by the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011; the number of staff who were allocated these phones; if each staff member has their mobile phone bill paid by the Office of the Chief State Solicitor; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19765/12]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 160 and 161 together.

The figure for telephones quoted by the Deputy includes expenditure on landline calls, mobile calls and data lines. Data lines are used to connect the three buildings occupied by the Office, and to provide a connection to the Attorney General's Office and high speed connections to the government network. These connections are duplicated to allow for business to continue in the event of line failure or other loss of connectivity. Of the total of €540,795 quoted, some €168,000 is attributable to data lines over the three years.

Some €240,000 is attributable to landline use over the three years giving an average spend of €80,000 per year. Based on a staff of approximately 220, this shows an average spend of €364 per staff member per year.

€132,000 was spent on mobile phones over the three years giving an average spend of €44,000 per year. The average spend per mobile phone user over the three year period was €404 per annum.

All staff have access to a landline telephone extension from the Office switchboard.

Senior management and legal staff who attend court or are regularly out of the Office on business have been allocated mobile phones. Some staff are allocated mobile phones on a temporary basis while on call or working on specific cases. As a rule the Office avails of offers of free mobile phones from the contracted supplier. Specific phones have been bought for five Officers within the last two years at a cost of approximately €1,500.

The Office mobile phone contract has an ‘all in' price for calls and text to Irish numbers. The Office has a policy whereby personal usage outside this price is recouped from staff.

The Office considers that it achieves value for money with its telecommunications services.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

162 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if he will provide details of companies that provide external IT services to the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor. [19766/12]

For security reasons the Office does not disclose the names of the companies which provide IT Services to it. However services have been provided in the following areas:

Installation and configuration of new equipment;

Configuration of IT security applications;

Configuration and amendment of Financial Management System.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

163 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the reason telephonist services are outsourced by the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor. [19767/12]

The telephonist also acts as a receptionist. The Office carries out a significant amount of its business over the telephone and regularly receives legal documents at the front desk. It needs to have its telephonist/receptionist service available over normal business hours including lunchtimes.

The matter of providing receptionist/telephonist services from within internal resources is considered from time to time, most recently last year. Following review it has become apparent that there would be little or no savings to be made, particularly as staff would have to be taken from core duties of assisting with the legal work of the Office. Given the current financial situation and the moratorium on recruitment and promotions it would not be possible to recruit extra staff to carry out this function.

The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform recently asked all Departments and Offices to review non-core work with a view to using external services where possible. This example of where the Office has already been outsourcing non-core work has been reported to the Department.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

164 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor spent €423,474 on furniture in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011; if he views this cost as excessive; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19768/12]

Over the last three years the Office has refurbished accommodation in its main building, which is occupied by 180 staff. New furniture was provided as part this refurbishment. The building was last refurbished in 1997 and there has been little change in the layout since. New furniture to accommodate revised working arrangements has been provided where necessary and to satisfy accessibility and health and safety requirements. The Office has used suppliers based on contracts put in place by the OPW. The Office considers that value for money has been achieved throughout the refurbishment process. On the basis of 180 staff the average cost per employee over the three year period is €784.

Question:

166 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the amount of money that would be saved in the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor if public sector wages were capped at €100,000; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19770/12]

Based on current staff levels it is estimated that the Office would save €322,000 if salaries were capped at €100,000. Salary scales are set by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform and the Office has no control over these rates.

Question:

167 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if spending on furniture, fittings, maintenance and repairs by the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor is audited; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19772/12]

The Appropriation Account of the Chief State Solicitor's Office, which covers all expenditure from the Office's Vote, is audited every year by the Comptroller and Auditor General.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

168 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the measure that have been taken by the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor to reduce expenditure; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19773/12]

The Office reviewed its expenditure in 2011 as part of the Comprehensive Review of Expenditure. The main areas of expenditure within the Office are payroll and fees paid to counsel. Payroll and staff numbers are controlled by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Staff numbers are determined by the Employment Control Framework (ECF) which is revised by the Department from time to time and the allocation for payroll is agreed with that Department as part of the Estimates process. The Office complies with the ECF notified to it and this in turn drives the payroll expenditure. Pay levels are set by the Department.

The Office has implemented much tighter control of expenditure on fees to Counsel and has achieved a €7.5m reduction in 2011 over the 2008 figure. This represents a 42% reduction in expenditure since 2008. The Office will continue to monitor this expenditure very closely and reduce this cost further if at all possible. However, this very much dependent on the level of legal work coming into the Office from Government Departments and Offices.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

169 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor intends to reduce consultancy spending in the future; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19774/12]

The Office spent less than €20,000 on consultancy in 2011. The Office uses consultants only where absolutely necessary. While €29,000 has been allocated for 2012, it is expected that actual expenditure will be closer to the 2011 figure.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

170 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if he will provide the details of each of the solicitors and barristers who received payments from the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor during each of the past five years; and the amount each individual received for their services. [19775/12]

The details requested by the Deputy are contained in the following tables. There were no payments made to State Solicitors in 2008.

*Remuneration figure includes Salaries, overheads and secretarial services.

The individual amounts relate to arrears payments made following agreement to transfer the service to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Responsibility for the State Solicitor Service transferred to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in 2007 but payments were made from the CSSO Vate until year-end.

No payments were made to State Solicitors from the CSSO Vote in 2008. The CSSO entered into an agreement with State Solicitors in 2009 to carry out work in relation to ministerial prosecutions (e.g. social welfare fraud) around the country, hence the payments listed below for 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

171 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the items that may be claimed by staff in the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitors for travel subsistence and incidental expenses; the average payment to staff members in expenses; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19776/12]

The Office of the Chief State Solicitor adheres to Circular 11/82 in relation to Travel and Subsistence and also to the Circulars in relation to motor travel and subsistence rates issued by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. The main work related expenses for which reimbursement can be sought are:

Train fares,

Bus tickets,

Motor mileage,

Accommodation,

Subsistence,

Toll charges,

Car parking.

In general the Office uses the central Government contract for air travel which books trips directly rather than CSSO staff booking flights and recouping the cost from the Office. All expenses claimed by staff must be vouched for and are paid only if considered essential to the discharge of official duties. The average amount paid among those staff who claimed travel and subsistence in 2011 was €588.40.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

172 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach the reason €2.225 million was spent on office machinery by the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor between 2009 and 2011; if he views this figure as excessive; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19777/12]

The figure referred to by the Deputy covers expenditure not just on office machinery but also on IT goods and services as well as on stationery and printer supplies. The actual amount spent on office machinery over the three years was €162,000, which gives an average spend of €54,000 per year. The figure mainly relates to expenditure on photocopiers and binding equipment: the Office has a significant printing requirement in connection with its legal work.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

173 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if he will provide the details of all foreign travel undertaken by staff in the Office of the Chief State’s Solicitor during each of the past three years. [19778/12]

In the past three years staff have travelled to the following locations on official business:

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

175 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if he will provide details of the work outsourced by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution under the category general operative; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19780/12]

The work outsourced by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions under the category general operative mainly involves the provision of internal and external mail delivery and collection services and the operation of general office machinery such as franking, guillotine and shredding machines. When plans to move the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions to a single site have been implemented, it is anticipated that one of the efficiency savings which will be achieved is that this outsourced service will no longer be required.

Jonathan O'Brien

Question:

176 Deputy Jonathan O’Brien asked the Taoiseach if he will provide the details of the solicitors and barristers who received payments from the Director of Public Prosecutions during each of the past five years; and the amounts each individual received for their services. [19782/12]

The following lists show the amounts paid by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions to Counsel and to State Solicitors in each of the past five years. There are some differences between the totals of the list of fees to individual barristers shown below and the totals of amounts broken down by Court type supplied in the answer to a question from the Deputy on 27 March. For 2010 and 2011 the difference is around €20 each year and arises from rounding.

For 2009 and 2010 the differences are about €1,150 and €1,600 respectively and arose from the fact that the breakdown by Court type was drawn from an older accounting system replaced by the Office in 2009. For 2007 the difference was some €90,000 and arose from the fact that the old accounting system recorded a small number of payments as having been made in 2006 whereas the funds involved did not actually issue until 2007. All payments were correctly accounted for in the Office's annual Appropriation Accounts.

During the period in question, payments were made to other solicitors for advice provided to the Office on administrative matters as follows:
