The multiannual allocations for each Government Department, including the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, were set out in the Report of the 2011 Comprehensive Review of Expenditure. That Report contained the gross expenditure ceilings within which expenditure was to be managed over the medium term along with savings targets for 2013 and 2014.

The expenditure review identified savings measures of some €16 million in respect of my Department for 2013 which will be considered in the context of the estimates process and budgetary deliberations by Government.
