* Denotes signed by the Taoiseach rather than the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform

This secondary legislation does not place regulatory burdens on small and medium enterprises. The Deputy may be aware that a key objective of the Public Service Reform programme that is led by my Department is to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of public service delivery, including services to small and medium enterprises.
