Dúirt an Taoiseach i mí na Samhna seo caite go raibh timpeall 20% dá fhoireann le dílárnú, cé nach bhfuil a Roinn féin le dílárnú. Has the Taoiseach factored in a cost for retraining those who replace his decentralised staff members? Does he even intend to replace such staff members? Does he expect his staff to have moved out before the next general election? Are any members of his staff who volunteered for decentralisation in line for promotion? Has that policy been stopped following the Labour Court decision regarding FÁS? Was there an expectation that promotion would accompany a willingness to decentralise from his Department?
