Mr. Prendergast asked the Minister for the Gaeltacht if employment agencies are being used by his Department to recruit workers on a full-time or part-time basis; if his Department or any semi-State Body under the aegis of his Department have used agency staff in the past 12 months and for what grade of worker, i.e. manual, clerical, technical; and if he will state in respect of such staff over the last 12 months (a) the name of the agencies, (b) the number of staff hired, (c) the cost per head to the State and (d) the total amount paid by his Department.

Aire na Gaeltachta (Mr. O'Toole): Ní bhaineann mo Roinnse feidhm as gníomhaireachtaí den chineál sin agus tuigim nár bhain aon chomhlacht Stáit faoina scáth feidhm astu le bliain anuas.
