Issues covered:

Highlights this week: It's all new this week - We have a 34th amendment to the Irish Constitution; a new SI in whistleblowing; a new approach to open data from government; and new pay rises expected for 2016. 

Elsewhere, the UK government announces new plans to force larger employers to publish information about their bonuses for men and women as part of their gender pay gap reporting and the UK civil service will now begin to process job applications on a so-called ‘name blind’ basis, where only the skills, not names of applicants are considered. Lots of new ideas for readers to consider.
