Brian O'Shea


155 Mr. O'Shea asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the proposals, if any, he has to appoint an office manager to the Land Registry office in Waterford; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10279/00]

I would refer the Deputy to my answer to Question No. 351 on 28 March 2000 in which I stated that the additional staff sanctioned for the Land Registry includes a provision for two new principal officer posts, one of which will be filled in Waterford. I am informed by Land Registry management that the Waterford post is in fact an office manager post. I under stand that it is intended to make the appointment later in the year.
