Written answers (Question to Public)

The detailed information sought by the Deputy is not available to my Department. Impact on salaries would vary at the level of the individual having regard to the pay reductions for those on salaries above €65,000, the freezing or pausing of increments to those that may be eligible for an increment in 2014 and the amount of overtime or other non core salary earned. The reductions in the total pay bill of public servants arising from the Haddington Road Agreement and the Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest Act 2013 will be reflected in the public service pay estimates for 2014 which will be determined as part of Budget 2014.
