The information requested by the Deputy is currently being compiled. I will write to the Deputy shortly with the requested information.

The following deferred reply was received under Standing Order 42A
I refer to Parliamentary Question No. 265 in which the Deputy requested the budget and number of staff working in my Department in each of the years 2014 to 2018 and to date in 2019, in tabular form. As the Deputy will recall, the information he requested could not be obtained in the time frame available, and I undertook to contact him again.
The information requested is provided in the following table. The figure provided in regard to salaries, wages and allowances relates to the amount allocated through the Revised Estimates Volume in each respective year. Increases in staffing levels reflected overall trends within the civil service, increased State investment in the Justice and Equality sector and an expansion of the services provided by the Department.
