I propose to take Questions Nos. 604, 605 and 606 together.

Under section 159 of the Local Government Act 2001, each Chief Executive is responsible for the staffing and organisational arrangements necessary for carrying out the functions of the local authority for which he or she is responsible.

My Department oversees workforce planning for the local government sector, including the monitoring of local government sector employment levels. To this end, my Department gathers aggregate quarterly data on staff numbers in each local authority on a whole time equivalent basis.

Staffing numbers for the local authority sector are available on the Public Service Numbers databank, which is hosted and maintained by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform and is available at the following link:

However granular data, in terms of the number of local government employees in each of the local electoral areas in County Clare is not collected and consequently is not available in my Department.

Staff numbers for non-commercial State bodies under the aegis of my Department are also available on the aforementioned Public Service Numbers databank. However, granular data in terms of the number of non-commercial State body employees in each of the local electoral areas in County Clare are similarly not collected and, consequently, are not available in my Department.
