I propose to take Questions Nos. 912 to 919, inclusive, 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. The additional information requested by the Deputy is not readily available and is being compiled at present. This information will be forwarded to the Deputy as soon as it becomes available.
