The Legal Aid Board, which is a body under the aegis of my Department, has 166 permanent staff. In addition, it has three staff employed on fixedterm contracts and 57 temporary staff members. Six of the temporary staff are employed on a job-sharing basis. The number of permanent staff serving with the Employment Equality Agency, a body under the aegis of my Department, is 14. Four of these staff members are employed on a job-sharing basis. These figures reflect the numbers of persons employed and do not constitute the number of posts involved.
