Written answers (Question to Defence)

The estimated full year cost of Patrol Duty Allowance based on a 15% increase of 2018 costs would be some €2.7m. This figure also takes into account the restoration, with effect from 4 July 2019, of the 10% reduction in the allowance in question (under the Haddington Road Agreement).
