 254.  Deputy Robert Troy Information on Robert Troy Zoom on Robert Troy  asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Information on Brendan Howlin Zoom on Brendan Howlin  when will the list of potential stimulus for the economy be compiled; if all Members of the Oireachtas will have an opportunity to submit proposals for that list; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [23895/12]

Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform (Deputy Brendan Howlin): Information on Brendan Howlin Zoom on Brendan Howlin Since coming into office, the current Government has been working on a range of measures to boost employment and help stimulate economic growth. The first such measure announced by the Government was the Jobs Initiative, launched in May 2011, which comprised a range of taxation and expenditure measures of €1.8bn designed to help get people back to work. More recently my colleague, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, launched the Action Plan for Jobs 2012, a plan to rebuild the economy and create jobs through improving supports for job-creating businesses and removing barriers to employment-creation across the economy. Further work to stimulate economic growth and create employment is ongoing and I would be happy to receive any proposals that Deputies wish to submit in this regard.
