Dear Nevin

In your request ref. 10/16, you asked "Who are the current respective
leaders of the BIIC JS and which UK and Ireland departments are
represented in the BIIC JS"?

Can you please confirm that you are referring to the British Irish
Inter-Governmental Conferences and also referring to the Joint Secretaries
as JS?

If this is not what you are referring to, please expand on your request so
we can be clear as to what information you are seeking.

Many thanks

Quote-marks "20 May 2010

On behalf of the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Micheál Marin T.D., I wish to thank you for your recent query regarding the staffing of the British-Irish Intergovernmental Secretariat in Belfast.

For reasons of security and data protection, it is not possible for us to provide you with details of the Irish staff serving the Secretariat.

The Secretariat is a joint Irish-British body and is staffed by officials of both the Irish and British governments. It would not be correct to say that the position of the Joint Secretary is comparable to that of persons serving as Heads of Irish missions abroad."
