A series of bilateral meetings have taken place between my Department and the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection in the context of the work of the Interdepartmental Group (IDG) on Social Inclusion Work schemes, which included consideration of the RSS.

The report of the IDG is currently being finalised and I expect my colleague Minister Doherty will present it to cabinet in due course.
