Written answers (Question to Enterprise)

On 28 April 2021, I announced my intention to issue an Order to give effect to a statutory recommendation of the Labour Court concerning minimum rates of remuneration and other terms and conditions in the Security Sector.  The Order was to apply from 1 September 2021.  

An ex-parte application to initiate legal proceedings challenging the underlying legislation in the High Court was lodged in late July.  As part of the proceedings, the High Court has placed a Stay on me, which stops me from making the Order.  Until such time as these legal proceedings have concluded it is not possible to indicate a timeframe to the Deputy.
