No survey of the type described by the Deputy has been conducted in my Department. Civil-military working groups have been set up to consider the practical aspects of the transfer of staff to Newbridge and the Curragh. In that regard, appropriate measures will be put in place to ensure there is no adverse impact on the operations of the Department and Defence Forces headquarters.
