The Department of Health has not hired or engaged any agency staff in the past five years to date. I have asked the HSE to respond directly to the Deputy with regard to their employees.

With regard to the non-commercial state agencies under the aegis of my Department, a response will need to be sought from each agency, and a reply will be forwarded to the Deputy by separate letter once collated.
