I propose to take Questions Nos. 250 to 254, inclusive, together.

In relation to estimates of savings arising from the LRC proposals, it is intended to publish the Revised Estimates Volume for 2013 before end March 2013. This document will set out the revised allocations for Votes arising from the proposals made and will include an overall savings provision on the pay and pensions bill of some €300m for 2013. My Department will be contacting Departments shortly with the final pay allocations for 2013 including Employment Control Framework staffing ceilings which will include savings arising from the LRC proposals. This will have implications for the overall allocations for Votes. The Revised Estimates Volume for 2013 will be submitted to the Oireachtas for consideration in due course.

Following the publication of the 2013 Revised Estimates Volume, Departments will be contacted regarding their overall allocations for the period 2014-2016, including the ongoing effect of the pay proposals and staffing ceilings.
