Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that an official from my Department was in direct contact with the person referred to by him recently. A preview of this case has been undertaken and it is a complex issue. The priority for the Payroll Division of my Department at this time of year is to ensure that all new appointees to schools and all retirees are paid as quickly as possible. This priority work will be completed by late October. A comprehensive response will be issued to the person concerned at that time.
