Written answers (Question to Employment)

It should be noted that my Department has no contract for services with Working Links, rather its contract is with Turas Nua for the provision of JobPath services to jobseekers.

I have not met with Turas Nua in regard to recent developments concerning Working Links. However, Turas Nua has kept officials from my Department briefed on developments in this area and my officials have sought and received assurances that there will be no impact from these developments on the delivery of services to our customers.
