Written answers (Question to Transport)

I have no role in relation to the publication of title to lands in general, nor do I have any plans to publish a place map of lands for statutory bodies as requested by the Deputy. I have no responsibility for the Office of Public Works, for which my colleague the Minister of State at the Department of Finance is responsible; for Waterways Ireland, for which my colleague the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht is responsible; or for local authorities such as Dublin City Council. If the Deputy has particular issues she wishes to know more about in relation to lands owned by the statutory transport bodies, she may wish to contact my private office.  More generally, she may wish to contact the Property Registration Authority, given its statutory role, or Dublin City Council, given its planning role, for assistance.
