I propose to take Questions Nos. 43 and 47 together.
All Dublin based operations of my Department are being decentralised, with the exception of Met Éireann, ENFO, the Private Rented Tenancies Board and a small co-ordination section which it is proposed to retain in Dublin to assist with the Department's Dáil and other Dublin business.
Under the Department's implementation plan it is intended that the Minister, Ministers of State, Secretary General and assistant secretaries, environment division, policy-co-ordination support for each of the other divisions along with personnel, corporate development and finance will be located in Wexford. Heritage and planning division and local government division will be based in Waterford. Water and natural heritage division will be located in New Ross and housing division in Kilkenny. The Department will be co-operating with the Department of Finance, the decentralisation implementation group, DIG, and the Office of Public Works to ensure implementation of the programme within agreed timescales. In this regard it is expected that the DIG will report shortly to the Cabinet sub-committee on decentralisation outlining its views on sequencing and timing of moves.
