My Department does not retain, in a readily-accessible format, the information requested by the Deputy. The Department has, for instance, a significant number of staff who have irregular work patterns which would make the calculation of averages difficult and potentially misleading. Furthermore, as well as the usual mix of administrative grades found across the Civil Service, my Department has a range of professional and technical grades. In addition, the structure of my Department has changed and evolved over the years, reflecting an expansion in the Department's responsibilities within the Justice Sector. With regard to pay rates, increases over the period 1997 to 2008 were in accordance with the terms of successive partnership agreements.
