Written answers (Question to Children)

Last week I was advised by the HSE that further recruitment would be necessary to fill the principal social work position, two speech and language therapists and an addiction counsellor. The HSE has advised that there is now just one vacancy for a speech and language therapist. Interviews for the post of addiction counsellor will be held in December 2013. The HSE is to revert to me with additional information on recruitment for the other two posts as soon as possible and I will arrange for this information to be forwarded to the Deputy when it is available.
