Written answers (Question to Public)

I refer the Deputy to my response to his previous question on 3rd July 2018. In the response, I stated that the CSSO had outlined to Sligo County Council the material that they needed to provide in support of an application for the waiver of the Minister's interest in the piece of land identified, in accordance with Section 31 of the State Property Act 1954.

I am informed that Sligo County Council have not yet provided the material required. I would, however, point out that these can be complex matters and often take a lengthy time to resolve.
