Ceisteanna (674)

Tony McLoughlin

Ceist:

674. Deputy Tony McLoughlin asked the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if a person who has worked in a section 39 funded position for the past 12 years but who was not directly paid by the HSE will qualify for an analogous grade if that person commences work within her Department (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter.

I understand that the question of the recruitment, grading and status of people appointed to the Civil Service is a matter for the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and the Commission for Public Service Appointments.

I further understand that it is not possible for a person appointed from an open competition to rely on prior status in another employment for the purpose of grading in the civil or public service.

This is a matter that the Deputy may wish to clarify with the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform.
