Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

The Civil Service and Local Appointments Commissioners were requested some months ago by my Department to hold a public competition to fill this and other conservation ranger vacancies in the national parks and wildlife service. While the commissioners exercise this function independently, they have been asked to expedite the matter.
