Written answers (Question to Social)

At present, my Department is not in a position to provide a breakdown of the redundancy statistics by county, sector or gender. Work on the reporting facility of the redundancy payments system is on-going and it is hoped that it will be possible to provide these types of data in the near future. Information on the overall number of redundancy applications received by the Department is available on the Department’s website www.welfare.ie.
