A review of Border Duty allowance has been the subject of negotiations between the Department and the Representative Association (PDFORRA) under the Conciliation and Arbitration Scheme for members of the Permanent Defence forces. The matter was referred to Adjudication by PDFORRA. The report of the Adjudicator issued on 28 August 2009. The Adjudicator found that those in receipt of Border Duty allowance up to the date it was discontinued by the Department in February 2009 should retain it on a personal to holder basis. As required under the C&A Scheme the report of the Adjudicator has been laid before the Houses of the Oireachtas and a copy is available in the Dáil library. The Department has implemented the findings of the Adjudicator.
