Written answers (Question to Social)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 1106 and 1136 together.

Last year my Department received the report on the Public Employment Service from the Institute for Employment Studies. The report, is a contribution to the ongoing process of procuring new models of contracted Public Employment Services.

I referred the report to the Labour Market Advisory Council for their views and my Department has received a response from the Council. Both the report and the views of the Council are contributions that are being carefully considered by officials in my Department in terms of the future design and approach to the Public Employment Service and the contracting of employment services by my Department.

As of yet, no decision on a date of publication has been made for either the report or the response for the Council.
