John Deasy: I welcome Mr. Watt and his officials. The thrust of what Mr. Watt is getting at when it comes to the Civil Service changes or reforms has to do with making the Civil Service more attractive to people from the outside. There is some irony in the fact that a few years ago Mr. Watt came before the Committee of Public Accounts and famously said one of the big problems in recruiting and...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach: Matters relating to the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform: Discussion (3 Dec 2019)
