The review of Border Duty allowance has been the subject of negotiations between the Department and the Representative Association under the Conciliation and Arbitration Scheme (C&A scheme) for members of the Permanent Defence Forces. The matter has now been sent for Adjudication which is scheduled for Wednesday 8th July 2009.

The Deputy will appreciate that as discussions under the C&A scheme are confidential to the parties involved it would not be appropriate for me to comment further on the matter at this time.
