Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
The Government approved the plan earlier in the week. I am satisfied that the Garda Commissioner will now commence implementing the scheme. A sum of €6.5 million has been made available. It was always going to be a targeted scheme designed to proceed along the lines as envisaged in the report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland. It is expected that real progress on the severance scheme will be made, commencing early next year.
