I have appointed a temporary Advisor due to the absence of my Press Advisor for an extended period.

My temporary Press Advisor will be remunerated at the first point of the Principal Officer standard scale, in accordance with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform’s 'Instruction to Personnel Officers – Ministerial Appointments for the 32nd Dáil' which provides guidelines for the appointment of Special Advisors.

The formal process associated with the appointment is currently underway.
