As the Deputy will be aware, following the publication by the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform of the Estimates for Public Services on 9 October 2018, the total gross allocation for 2019 for the Courts Service was confirmed at €138.405 million, comprising €51.5 million for capital spending and €86.9 million for current expenditure. Therefore, a 5 % increase in the annual funding for the Courts Service would cost approximately €6.92 million.
