399.

There are no plans to change staff numbers in the State Examinations Commission.

I have put a revised proposal on the table which is different from that originally proposed. This has not been accepted by the teacher unions. What is clear is that reform will be introduced gradually over a period of time and will only be fully implemented in September 2019 (for terminal examination in June 2022) and that there will be no reduction in staffing requirements for the State Examinations Commission.
