Ceist:

176 Ms O'Donnell asked the Minister for Finance the number of civil servants allocated to him and to the Ministers of State at his Department for the purposes of dealing with constituency queries, representations and replies. [1101/94]

I have five civil servants allocated to me at my Department for the purposes of dealing with constituency queries, representations and replies. The Minister of State at the Department of Finance has two civil servants allocated for the same purposes. In the Minister of State's Office at the Office of Public Works no civil servants are specifically allocated for these purposes.
