My Department employs both civil servants and civilian employees attached to military installations. The following table provides details of the number of employees that were dismissed or suspended in the years 2016 to 2018 and to date in 2019. As only one person was suspended or dismissed during the full period covered by this question, the Deputy will appreciate that it would not be appropriate for me to set out the reasons for that dismissal as to do so may lead to the individual concerned being identified.
