Under the ceilings set as part of last year's Comprehensive Expenditure Review, my Department is required to secure savings on current expenditure of €77 million in 2013.

In addition, there are likely to be upward pressures in some areas of pay and non-pay expenditure and in relation to reduced Appropriations-in-Aid receipts. The full extent and management of these pressures is currently being assessed by my Department in the context of the projected expenditure outturn for 2012.
