Department of Defence
Army Bomb Disposals Data
35. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence the number of personnel employed within the Army bomb disposal unit and for each of the past ten years; if there are staff shortages in the unit; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [45882/19]
For reasons of operational security, it would be inappropriate for me to comment on the disposition and specifics of the Defence Forces' Explosive Ordnance Disposal capabilities.
As I have previously outlined, there are a wide range of recruitment and retention initiatives underway for Permanent Defence Force personnel.
