The information sought by the Deputy is not available for the period prior to the inauguration of the Corepay system in 2002 and the average salary figures for the period prior to 2008 is not readily available. However, work on compiling the average salary figures by grade for the years 2002-2007 is under way and I will be happy to provide the Deputy with this information before the end of next week. I have included in tabular form a breakdown of the numbers of posts in my Department for each of the years from 2002 to 2008.
