Restructuring of government department

The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry is to scrap two of its divisions in a major restructuring.

The department says staff will be redeployed into other divisions where they will continue to provide services.

Animal Health will combine with the Agricultural Services Division, while the Wildlife and Conservation Division will be broken up.

Minister Phil Gawne says the new structure will make the department more efficient, while still able to meet its commitments.
