TAIOISEACH Enda Kenny will tell unions this week which areas of public sector reforms he wants fast-tracked.

Mr Kenny will set out where the Government feels more savings can be made at a meeting of the Croke Park Agreement Implementation Group on Thursday.

The meeting follows Mr Kenny's orders to ministers four weeks ago to come up with areas where additional savings can be made.

The group is made up of representatives of the Government, public sector unions and management.

Public Spending Minister Brendan Howlin will also be in attendance.
