Written answers (Question to Children)

There are 285 staff employed in my Department. As the Deputy maybe aware, any adjustments to the salaries of public and civil servants are set out in the Public Service Stability Agreement (PSSA) 2018-2020.

DPER Circular 17/2019 sets out the adjustments to the pay of civil servants on 1 September 2019 as provided for under the Public Service Pay and Pensions Act 2017 and is available on www.circulars.gov.ie

All Civil Service salary scales comply with the minimum wage.
