Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
Public Service Pay Commission Reports
123. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform when the Public Service Pay Commission will complete its work on the examination of recruitment and retention challenges in the defence sector; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20311/19]
As set out in my reply to PQ 18042 of 18/04/2019 I understand that written submissions have been received from both the Employer and relevant staff associations and more recently, on 5th March last, oral presentations were also made to the Commission by both parties. Following this, the Commission has indicated that it expects to complete its examination of recruitment and retention matters in the Defence Forces by the end of quarter two 2019.
