Written answers (Question to Finance)

My Department is not in a position to provide details of the reduction in numbers as there is no targeted redundancy or early retirement scheme available to staff in my Department. Figures are not yet available for those who may retire on or before 31 August 2014 following the application of pay adjustments and related measures in accordance with the Financial Emergency Measure in the Public Interest Act, 2013 and the Haddington Road Agreement.
