I propose to take Questions Nos. 909 and 910 together.

I am advised by the Military authorities that there are 42 physical education degree holders and 236 physical training instructors currently serving in the Defence Forces. The Military authorities have further advised that these figures are proving adequate at present to meet the needs of the Defence Forces at home and overseas.
