Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food)

The termination of contracts of employment of contract staff employed by Teagasc is an operational matter for Teagasc itself.

Ministerial responsibility to Dáil Éireann in relation to Teagasc is confined to matters of policy. The Minister does not interfere in the day-to-day operations of Teagasc.
