Dáil Éireann Debate
150. Deputy Dara Murphy asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if the funding is in place for a Garda station (details supplied); if funding is in place, when the work on the new station will commence; when it will be completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [13025/11]
Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): The programme of replacement and refurbishment of Garda accommodation is based on agreed priorities established by An Garda Síochána. This programme is progressed by the Office of Public Works (OPW), which has responsibility for the provision and maintenance of Garda accommodation.
I am advised by the Garda authorities that in the coming weeks the OPW will be undertaking a planning process in respect of a refurbishment project for the station referred to by the Deputy. I also understand the intention is that tendering for the project will take place later this year.
