The Conciliation and Arbitration (C&A) scheme for members of the Permanent Defence Force provides a formal mechanism for the Permanent Defence Force Representative Associations, that is RACO (in respect of Commissioned Officers) and PDFORRA (in respect of other ranks), to bring forward claims for improvements in the remuneration and terms and conditions for their members.

At present a claim for an increase in Patrol Duty Allowance is currently before Conciliation Council. As discussions under the C&A scheme are confidential to the parties involved, it would not be appropriate for me to comment further on the matter, at this time.
