Written answers (Question to Employment)

As required under section 21 of the Social Welfare, Pensions and Civil Registration Act, my Department recently finalized a report on the financial effects of the consideration of maintenance payments as household income in the means test for various social welfare payments.

I expect the report to be laid before the Houses of the Oireachtas shortly.
