Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
944. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the estimated cost of implementing a living wage €12.30 for all employees directly employed and or in agencies under his remit; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [30774/19]
Payment of salaries to staff of my Department is made in line with pay scales approved by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. If a living wage of €12.30 was introduced, the increased annual cost to my Department would be approximately €3,600, based on the civil service 37 hour standard net working week. This figure will reduce as and when the staff concerned progress along an incremental scale.
The details requested in relation to bodies under the aegis of my Department are a matter for the individual bodies concerned. Arrangements have been put in place by each Agency to facilitate the provision of information by State Bodies directly to members of the Oireachtas. The contact email address for each agency is set out in the following table.
