T1. Mr Boylan asked the Minister for Social Development why there has been such a delay in dealing with Housing Executive workers’ pay increment. (AQT 2411/11-15)

That is obviously an issue for ourselves and the board, and I hope to be in a position to have it resolved within a matter of weeks.

I thank the Minister for his answer. Will you outline what engagement you have had with DFP on this matter, and can you outline a timeline for its resolution? Go raibh míle maith agat.

As in all these things, this remains a matter on which we have to engage with DFP and the processes that we have. I will write to the Member with an answer about the timeline.
