Ms Hanafin Ms Hanafin
Ms Hanafin: Twenty seven (27) officers from my Department have transferred under the programme of decentralisation either directly to their location of choice or they relocated there within a very short period of their initial transfer. This information is available as it was known to my Department when these transfers were arranged. There are no records in my Department regarding the current location/assignment of a further 14 officers who transferred from its Dublin offices to other organisations in Dublin to await relocation to their location of choice, as records are not maintained on officers in my Department when those officers transfer elsewhere.
Five percent (5%) of the 41 officers who have transferred to relocate have had a previous transfer within a two year period of the decentralisation transfer. No officer from my Department has transferred from an office outside of Dublin to a Dublin office to await relocation elsewhere.
