Written Answers - Departmental Staff.

  238. Ms Shortall asked the Minister for Transport the extent of legal expertise that exists within his Department; the vacancies that currently exist and the proportion this represents of all legal staff. [40106/05]

  Mr. Cullen: There are no posts in this Department which have legal expertise as a requirement and as a consequence, there are no vacancies. Some staff members have legal expertise but it is not a normal requirement.
