Payment of salaries to staff of my Department is made in line with pay scales approved by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Based on the civil service 37 hour standard net working week, there is just one employee of my Department earning less than €12.30 per hour.

The details requested in relation to bodies under the aegis of my Department are a matter for the individual bodies concerned. Arrangements have been put in place by each Agency to facilitate the provision of information by State Bodies directly to members of the Oireachtas.
