Question

428. Deputy Michael Lowry asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if she will provide a breakdown on the number of civil servants employed by the Courts Service in County Tipperary for 2011, 2012 and 2013, and currently by full time or part time basis, grade and location. [1169/15]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As the Deputy will be aware, under the provisions of the Courts Service Act 1998, management of the courts is the responsibility of the Courts Service which is independent in exercising its functions.
