As Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection I do not have responsibility for this matter. Access to the industrial relations machinery of the State is a matter for my colleague, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation. In addition, my colleague, the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, has responsibility for public service pay and pensions.

I hope this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
