Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Temporary Civil Servants.

asked the Minister for Finance if he will state the number of temporary civil servants who have been more than ten years, 15 years, 20 years and 25 years, respectively, in the employment of the State.

The statistics requested by the Deputy are not available centrally, and it was not possible to obtain them in the limited time available since the question was put down. I am arranging for their compilation and I suggest that the question be repeated early in the coming session.
