Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

The position regarding the property in question is that it has not been clarified if indeed it has vested in the State. It has been recommended to the person referred to in the question that she secure legal advice on the status of the property. To date, no communication from a legal representative acting on behalf of this person has been received either by my Department or by the Chief State Solicitor who is representing me in this matter.

Until the status of the property has been established, I am not in a position to make a decision in relation to this case.
