Ceisteanna (64)

Seán Ryan


87 Mr. S. Ryan asked the Taoiseach his views on whether the proposed transfer of staff from the Central Statistics Office in Swords, County Dublin to a city centre location is going against the principal of decentralisation; and if he will review the decision taken. [14737/07]

Additional staff were required for a six to nine month period to work on the processing of 2006 Census of Population in the CSO's Swords office. A number of these additional staff were drawn from the ranks of existing Dublin based Civil Servants on the understanding that they would be re-deployed within the Dublin area on completion of the Census work. These temporary arrangements were not part of the Decentralisation Programme.
