I propose to take Questions Nos. 43, 62 and 69 together.

The resignation of the person concerned from the position of Director General of FÁS was secured as it was considered to be in line with the best interests of the FÁS organisation and its clients. The former Director General resigned on the basis that severance arrangements acceptable to him were agreed.

The severance arrangements were granted in accordance with section 6 (3) of the Labour Services Act, 1987, and with the required approvals under SI 514/1998.
