Written answers (Question to Housing)

Payment of salaries to staff of my Department is made in line with pay scales approved by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Currently, there are two members of staff in my Department earning a salary below the amount of €11.70 per hour.  This figure will reduce as and when the staff concerned progress along an incremental scale.
