Ceisteanna (125)

David Stanton


254 Mr. Stanton asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food if he will consider opening or relocating an agriculture office in east or north Cork to provide a service to the farmers there in view of the fact that the proposal to move all the staff at present working in Cork city to Macroom will necessitate a long journey through Cork city for farmers from the east and the north of the county; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I refer the Deputy to the Budget Statement of the Minister for Finance on decentralisation of this Department's Cork city staff to Macroom. I have no plans to open or relocate another office in Cork.
