Based on current salaries and staff numbers, the additional annual salary cost for implementing a  wage of €12.30 per hour is estimated to be €2,105,568.70 for 592 staff.

These figures include bodies under the aegis of my Department with the exception of An Garda Síochána, the Legal Aid Board, and the Courts Service who were not able to supply data within the timeline.  I have asked these bodies to provide the information directly to the Deputy as soon as it is available.
