I propose to take Questions Nos. 147 and 148 together.

The number of staff of my Department who availed of study leave and training days in 2012 and 2013 is set out in the tables below. All staff receive full pay and benefits while availing of training courses or on study leave.

The Deputy should note that figures for training in 2013 are up to and including 31st March, as these are the latest figures available to the Department. The figures in relation to study leave for 2013 are to the current date.

It is not possible in the time available to provide information regarding the average duration of training leave.

The granting of study and training leave in the Agencies under the aegis of my Department is a day to day matter for the Agencies concerned. I have asked the Agencies to respond directly to the Deputy.
