Ms Harney: The following tables detail the numbers and grade of staff employed in my private and constituency offices and the annual cost of each office in terms of salary, overtime and expenses. All staff are permanent civil servants except for special advisers, personal assistants and personal secretary.
In addition to the three special advisers listed above a senior manager is on loan from the Health Service Executive and works as part of my advisory team but is not contracted by the Department and continues to be an employee of the executive.
