Public Service Staff
Tom Fleming (Kerry South, Independent)
Question 271: To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if all Government offices in County Kerry will be retained; if current staffing levels will be maintained; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9191/12]
Brendan Howlin (Minister, Department of Public Expenditure and Reform; Wexford, Labour)
As part of its Reform Agenda, the Government is committed to reducing public service numbers to 282,500 by the end of 2015 with the aim of producing a more customer focused, leaner, more efficient, better integrated public service which delivers maximum value for money. Details of Public Service staff numbers and Government Offices are not held centrally on a county by county basis. The Deputy is advised to contact the relevant Ministers directly for such information. The Department of Public Expenditure and Reform does not have any Offices in Co. Kerry.
