The estimated full year cost of increasing all weekly social welfare payments to €350 per week is €8,814.8m. This includes a proportionate increase for Qualified Adults and those on reduced rates of payment.

These costings are subject to change in the context of emerging trends and associated revision of the estimated numbers of recipients.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.

Barr
