Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
I find it surprising that the Minister does not have the figure off the top of his head.
The Minister talked about the public service stability agreement. Clause 3 of that agreement allows for Government action for specific purposes. There is a recruitment and retention crisis within the health service. Does this clause not allow the Minister to sit down with the nurses and at least talk about pay with them?
