Changes to subsistence rates
by Bernard Harbor
Increases in the five-hour and ten-hour rates for civil service expenses will come into effect from 1st December, following a management-union review.
Changes to the rates are expected to be applied in the broader public service in line with standard practice.
The daily subsistence five-hour rate will increase from €15.41 to €16.29, and the ten-hour rate of €36.97 goes up to €39.08.
In accordance with an agreed formula, and in line with changes to the consumer price index (CPI), there was no change in the standard overnight rate.
