I propose to take Questions Nos. 1202 and 1203 together.

The 2020 Revised Estimates Volume was published in December 2019 and the estimated overall expenditure for Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection for 2020 was €21,204.4 million (€21.2 billion).

The expenditure incurred for Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection scheme payments in April of each year 2012, 2016, 2019 and 2020 is detailed in the following table.

Year April 2012 April 2016 April 2019 April 2020
Expenditure € million 1,597.3 1,664.7 1,641.5 3,144.2

The total expenditure incurred for Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection scheme payments in the years 2012, 2016 and 2019 is detailed in the following table.

Year 2012 2016 2019
Expenditure € million 20,734.6 19,787.7 20,755.4

I understand my colleague, the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform, will bring proposals to Government in the near future with regard to the Department's 2020 estimate and requirement for a Dáil vote.
