I propose to take Questions Nos. 447 to 449, inclusive, together.

The information on Assistant Principal posts requested by the Deputy is being compiled and will be forwarded direct to him. I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the allowances for assistant principal posts will be restored to their monetary value as of the 31 December 2009 with effect from the 1st October, 2020.

The value of the AP1 allowance from the 1st October, 2020 will be €8,968 and the AP 2 value will be €3,967.
