Dáil Éireann Debate
92. Mrs. T. Ahearn asked the Minister for Finance the reason for the delay in the provision of the new agriculture offices in Tipperary town; when the new facilities will be available; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9358/99]
Minister of State at the Department of Finance (Mr. Cullen): The main reason for the delay in the provision of the new offices for the Department of Agriculture and Food and the Department of Social, Community and Family Affairs is due to a requirement of the conditions of the planning permission that a full archaeological excavation of the site be carried out before the commencement of any development on the site. This excavation has now been completed.
The following is the programme for the completion of the project. Tenders will be invited in the first week of May 1999. Contract placed and contractor on site by the end of June 1999. Contract period is 12 months followed by a fit-out period of one month. The offices will be ready for occupation by August 2000.
