[40712/08]
Minister for Transport (Deputy Noel Dempsey): 10 Departmental and 40 Road Safety Authority staff were decentralised to Loughrea in July, 2007, a total of 50 staff. Of these, 10 staff relocated from Dublin in the following grades: 2 Assistant Principal Officers, 5 Transport Officers, 1 Higher Executive Officer,1 Executive Officer and 1 Staff Officer.
62 posts were also decentralised to Ballina. Of these, 8 staff relocated from Dublin in the following grades: 2 Assistant Principal Officers, 2 Executive Officers, and 4 Clerical Officers. The remaining Departmental staff did not volunteer to decentralise out of Dublin.
44 staff from my Department transferred to posts in other Departments which were due to move out of Dublin under the decentralisation programme. The ultimate transfer of these staff is a matter for their parent Departments. My Department has not decentralised staff to any location other than Ballina and Loughrea.
