A new decentralisation scheme for civil servants is on the table as part of the negotiations for Budget 2020, the Irish Independent can reveal.

The programme could see civil servants from a range of departments base themselves in offices in regional towns rather than Dublin.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe is considering more flexible working arrangements as one way of reducing pressure for housing and other services in the capital.
