Written answers (Question to Children)

The following table sets out the numbers of whole-time equivalent employees by grade in relation to my own Department at the end of each year since establishment in June 2011. The Deputy may wish to note that the increase in staffing at my Department from 2011 to 2012 takes account of the transfer of functions for the Irish Youth Justice Service from the Department of Justice and Equality in January 2012 and the corresponding redeployment of civil servants associated with that work. As my Department does not routinely hold this level of detailed information in respect of agencies under it's remit, I have asked that the information requested be supplied directly to the Deputy by the agencies involved.
