I propose to take Questions Nos. 66 and 67 together.

As the Deputy is aware, the issue regarding the staff of An Post National Lottery Company was referred to the Labour Relations Commission (LRC). The LRC has prepared a proposal regarding the issue and these proposals have been put forward to An Post management, the An Post Group of Unions and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform on the basis that the relevant parties agree to recommend them for acceptance. Deliberations are still in progress and have yet to be formally concluded between the parties concerned.
