Written answers (Question to Health)

There have been two special advisers appointed to me as Minister for Health (Joanne Lonergan and Kathyann Barrett). The salary applicable to both advisers is the standard scale for the grade of Principal Officer in the Civil Service (€80,852 - €99,408) in accordance with the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform instructions to Personnel Officers on Ministerial Appointments for the 32nd Dáil. The special advisers are suitably qualified for their roles.
