I propose to take Questions Nos. 73 and 74 together.
As the Deputy will be aware, in the context of measures necessary to restore order to the public finances, Government pay policy has been consistent in its approach to the processing of cost-increasing pay claims. Accordingly, non-binding Labour Court Recommendations which will result in a pay increase, such as those referred to by the Deputy, are precluded from implementation. This was provided for in the Croke Park Agreement and continues to be provided for in the Public Service Stability Agreement (Haddington Road) 2013-2016.
