Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Minister for Education and Skills)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 130 and 151 together.

The person referred to by the Deputy was employed as a Junior Certificate School Programme Research and Development Officer with City of Dublin VEC (CDVEC). CDVEC is a statutory body with its own corporate status established under the Vocational Education Acts, 1930 to 2001. The matters raised with regard to the termination of this person's employment are appropriate to CDVEC as the employer. The Deputy may also wish to note that that my Department no longer provides funding to the Junior Certificate Schools Programme for a specialist post in the area of research.
