It adds that: “The concerned staff will be informed on Monday by their respective Heads of Department. The decision was a difficult one to make but the current market circumstances are even more difficult and complex compounded by the business uncertainty.”

After the first lay-offs, MPs questioned why such a profit-making government entity was laying off staff.
