Deputy Edward O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Defence if a person (details supplied) in County Cork with the Naval Service can return to a land based position of employment. [16642/07]
Deputy Willie O’Dea Deputy Willie O’Dea
 Deputy Willie O’Dea: The Naval Service endeavours to operate a two-year seagoing/two-year shore-based rotation for personnel. The person in question has not yet completed a two-year sea rotation. To rotate him ahead of schedule would have meant shortening the time ashore of another member of the Naval Service in the same rank.
The process to post the person in question to a shore-based unit has already been initiated and he is aware of that. It was intended to effect this during June but, since he is currently on sick leave, the administration of the move cannot be completed until he returns to duty.
