Mr. Quinn Mr. Quinn
Mr. Quinn asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the projected staffing level of the Garda central vetting unit in Thurles, broken down by number and rank or grade; the number of such posts already filled, broken down by number and rank or grade; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell:The overall sanctioned staffing level for the Garda Central Vetting Unit and the associated Garda Central Records Office in Thurles is currently 40 posts, comprising 4 Staff Officers, 29 Clerical Officers, 1 Garda Inspector, 3 Garda Sergeants and 3 Gardaí. All of these posts, with the exception of the latter three, are currently filled and it is proposed to fill the three vacancies shortly.
I am satisfied that these staffing levels are sufficient to meet current demands on the service. However, staffing levels in the Garda Central Vetting Unit will be kept under review in the light of requirements.
