Written answers (Question to Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation)

In May 2005 the Director of Corporate Enforcement sought additional staff for his Office. In 2007 it was agreed to provide 8 additional staff to the Office. The Department of Justice and Equality also agreed to provide an additional Garda to the Office at that time. At the initiation of the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement's investigation into events at Anglo Irish Bank five additional civilian staff were provided to the Office as well as two Gardaí staff from the Department of Justice and Equality. There are currently no outstanding staffing requests from the Director.

No request has been made by NERA for additional staff.
