I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department was not charged with establishing any working groups to deal with any matters arising from social partnership agreements.

My Department has established a Central Partnership Committee to facilitate and oversee the development and enhancement of partnership within the Department. It aims to help improve organisational performance and efficiency, the working environment and the delivery of services within the Department and to consider, approve and assist in the implementation of plans for change and modernisation as required by the terms of Social Partnership Agreements. The membership of the committee comprises senior managers, staff and union representatives.
