Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 266 and 267 together.

The majority of properties occupied by my Department are owned or leased on its behalf by the Office of Public Works (OPW).

I can confirm that the Department has not purchased or leased land during this period. Information in respect of buildings leased by my Department is contained in the attached document.

I have requested that all agencies under the aegis of my Department respond directly to the Deputy.
