No civil servant is based full-time or part-time in my constituency office in Ranelagh. There are two staff members in my constituency office in Ranelagh. These are a personal secretary and a personal assistant. They deal with all correspondence received from my constituents and arrange meetings at my clinic. There are three executive officers and three clerical officer positions based in my office in my Department, two of which are job sharing. Of this number, two members of staff, a clerical officer and an executive officer, deal with constituency related matters which come to the Department. The remaining members of staff deal with departmental issues.
