Under Circular 18/2010, issued by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and effective from 1 January 2011, a reduction in pay rates and fixed term allowances of persons to be recruited to certain direct entry grades in the civil service was introduced. This was subsequently superseded by Circular 2/2014 in relation to the implementation of Clause 2.31 of the Haddington Road Agreement.

There have been no new entrant civil servants to my Department impacted by the above circulars.
