Deputy Róisín Shortall asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Finance the number of posts decentralised to date as part of his Department’s decentralisation programme; the location of the decentralised posts in each case; the corresponding number of posts that have been reduced from his Department’s Dublin offices to date; and the overall net loss or gain in terms of post numbers as a result of the decentralisation of these posts.

Deputy Brian Cowen Deputy Brian Cowen
Deputy Brian Cowen: My Department has decentralised one hundred and seventeen (117) posts to its new offices in Tullamore, County Offaly and arrangements are being made for a further sixteen (16)  posts to be filled. One hundred and fifteen (115) posts have been reduced in my Dublin offices. The overall net gain in terms of post numbers as a result of decentralisation to Tullamore is two (2), but this will be subject to a review.
However, my Department continues to keep its establishment within its overall numbers limits, which have not been altered as a result of decentralisation.
