Written answers (Question to Defence)

The Conciliation and Arbitration (C&A) scheme for members of the Permanent Defence Force provides a formal mechanism for the Permanent Defence Force Representative Associations, that is PDFORRA and RACO, to engage with the Official side.

The payment of an allowance for Commandants in the Air Corps who perform emergency aeromedical service duties is currently being processed through the C&A scheme. As discussions under the C&A scheme are confidential to the parties involved, it would not be appropriate for me to comment further on the matter at this time.
