Seán Fleming (Laois-Offaly, Fianna Fail)
Question 539: To ask the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will outline on a yearly basis from 2008 to 2015 in respect of staff leaving the public service in his Department; the cost of lump sums; the cost of severance payments; the cost of pensions of those leaving the service through retirement or other means; the loss of the pension levy from employees who have left; the loss of superannuation payments from retired or departed employees, in tabular form; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8440/12]
Alan Shatter (Minister, Department of Justice, Equality and Defence; Dublin South, Fine Gael)
In general the costs associated with staff leaving my Department, including any retirement lump sum and ongoing pension payments are incurred from Vote 7 Superannuation and Retired Allowances of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. As a result the information sought would not be available directly from my Department.
