Written answers (Question to Justice)

I wish to advise the Deputy that there were no capital projects in excess of €10m completed by my Department since 2014. I have requested that relevant Agencies under the remit of my Department and operating under a separate Vote structure (Courts Service, Prison Service and An Garda Síochána) respond directly to the Deputy.
