Written answers (Question to Arts)

I understand that the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform will provide the information requested by the Deputy in respect of the staff of my Department. With regard to bodies under the aegis of my Department, I am advised the average age of full-time staff in such bodies is currently 46.73 but that records are not maintained of the average age of staff for previous years.
