Written answers (Question to Public)

The closest data currently available within the Department to that sought by the Deputy indicating the estimated breakdown of employee numbers on a whole time equivalent basis (based on a whole time equivalent figure of 290,000) by salary range within the public service post 1 July 2013 is set out in Table 1 below. The estimate takes account of the reductions in pay arising from the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (No. 2) Act, 2009, and the Financial Emergency Measures Act 2013, but does not take account of the impact of the Pension Related Deduction (PRD) or any offsetting reductions in taxes and levies.
