Written answers (Question to Environment)

The measures applying to my Department and agencies under the aegis of my Department are set out in the Haddington Road Agreement.

As stated by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, the Haddington Road Agreement (HRA) will facilitate a reduction of €1 billion in the public service pay and pensions bill by 2016. In relation to my Department, the savings arising under HRA have been incorporated in the Department’s revised estimate for 2013 and appropriate provision in this regard will be incorporated in the vote allocations for 2014 and 2015 in the context of the overall estimates processes for these years.
