Department of Education and Skills
253. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the number of staff, by location and function, in each office of her Department nationally; if the property is State owned or leased; and the detail of these leases in the case of those properties on a lease in terms of cost, term and next break date. [38859/21]
The number of staff in my Department by location and function is set out in the attached table. The renting/leasing of all offices in my Department, with the exception of office space which a small number of Department staff share with the state-owned Kilkenny Education Centre, is managed by the Office of Public Works (OPW) which acts as an agent for all Government Departments in this regard. As such, the terms, cost and duration of these leases is a matter for the OPW.
