Does the Taoiseach have information on the Departments and locations to which the officials in question have applied to be transferred? The Taoiseach will recall that when the former Minister for Finance announced at the end of December 2003 that the Government intended to pursue a programme of decentralisation, he indicated that 10,300 public servants would be decentralised from Dublin within a three-year period. It seems that the programme is now in deep trouble.
