Written answers (Question to Justice)

The specific budget for the Insolvency Service of Ireland (ISI) for 2014 will be published as part of the upcoming Revised Estimate Volume.

It is not possible to provide budgetary estimates for 2015 or 2016. Budgetary allocations for future years will take in to account the annual business requirements of the Service at that time.

The ISI currently has 88 staff members. The total approved staff allocation for the ISI is 91. Recruitment is ongoing to complete the sanctioned staff allocation.
