Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised that the Irish Prison Service retains a personnel file in respect of the Officer referred to by the Deputy.  

I am further advised that the Director General of the Service reviewed the file relating to the person named and that he is satisfied that proper procedures were followed in relation to his dismissal.  There has been no recommendation that he should be reinstated.
