Cabinet starts to deliberate on agency workers

The Cabinet met yesterday morning and discussed the question of Agency workers who are presently deployed in the Civil Service.

This was an issue that the Chief Minister had already committed to tackle in his May Day speech. The truth is that the intensive demands of the Brexit agenda have served to delay the in-depth consideration of this matter. 

The Cabinet has completed its preliminary examination of this question and requested further information in order to assist with its deliberations. Ministers have also requested more statistical data in order in obtain a clear representation of the position.

This work will continue, with the Cabinet resuming its discussions tomorrow morning.
