I thank all the speakers. I will home in on one point that was mentioned briefly. I refer to the local authority staff and the cohort that may be transitioning over in this context. I am conscious that discussions are under way at the Workplace Relations Commission, WRC. Is there a view within the Department that the legislation from 2013 is sufficient to transition those workers over? Is the Department sure that sufficient comfort and legal safeguards are contained in that legislation to allow for those staff to transition over?
