252. Deputy Willie O'Dea asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if the new road map for social inclusion 2019 to 2025 will be further delayed in view of the fact that new SILC data is due for release on 28 November 2019 which may impact on the targets set in the road map and so on; if the road map for social inclusion will have to be revised in view of the new data; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

The new Roadmap for Social Inclusion 2020-2025 will include data from the 2018 EU Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC), to be released by the CSO on 28 November, with any necessary adjustments made to the targets.  It is not expected that the inclusion of this data will have any impact on the timeframe for publication of the new Roadmap.
