 167.  Deputy Ann Phelan Information on Ann Phelan Zoom on Ann Phelan  asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  if he will clarify whether teachers may work a maximum of 25 hours per week; if he will further clarify if a resource or learning support teacher may only work a number of hours per week, whereas a person initially working 15.2 hours per week spread over three days may make up their hours by teaching on a substitute basis for the other two days; if she will further clarify that when the hours are combined it would make 25.2, which is 0.2 hours above the maximum rate, even though the teacher is willing to forfeit the 0.2 hours, and the primary payroll system is unable to process this and therefore may only pay 20.2 hours; his views on whether this is a disincentive to sub for the extra two days when it would appear they would merely be penalised for doing so; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16070/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn The issues raised by the Deputy are being examined by officials from my Department and a reply will issue direct to the Deputy.
