Minister for Social and Family Affairs (Deputy Martin Cullen): Information on Martin Cullen  Zoom on Martin Cullen  Plans to replace this office with a new one are at an advanced stage.

The scale of works required to make the current building accessible to persons with disabilities could not be justified on the grounds of time and costs.
