Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy is aware, Stepaside Station is currently fully operational and I am informed by the Garda authorities that at this stage it is not possible to provide an accurate estimate of the costs that will be associated with transferring the relevant Garda personnel and equipment to other locations. However, the Garda authorities have also indicated that the costs involved are not expected to be significant.
