Question:

104 Mr. E. Byrne asked the Minister for Finance the total employed as general services grades, professional and technical grades, departmental grades and other grades namely, cleaners, services officers and so on, on 1 January 1991, 1 January 1995, 9 June 1995 and 1 January 1996. [1772/96]

I propose to take Question Nos. 103 and 104 together.

Staffing returns in respect of non-industrial civil servants are obtained on an end of quarter basis. Accordingly, data in respect of 9 June 1995, is not readily available and information in respect of 30 June 1995, is given instead.

Details of the numbers employed in the specified categories, for the dates in question, are set out in Table 1. A breakdown of the main general service grades, which includes services attendants and services officers is given in Table 2. Figures in respect of Departmental grades are not available as a unit. They do, however, account for the greater part of the numbers shown at 2 and 3 on Table 1.
