Written Answers. - Government Department Decentralisation.
Under the current decentralisation programme, which is based on that originally formulated in 1980, approximately 200 staff of the Office of the Revenue Commissioners will transfer to Nenagh. An advertisement inviting applications for tenders will be placed in the newspapers tomorrow. It is expected that the accommodation will be ready in 1990 and that the actual transfer will take place around that time.
