I propose to take Questions Nos. 167 and 168 together.

Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) is a statutorily independent State Agency. The day to day operations of the Agency, including the recruitment and appointment of staff, are a matter for the Chief Executive and senior management of QQI. QQI has an established recruitment policy and corresponding procedures which govern such matters.
