Eamon Gilmore


143 Deputy Eamon Gilmore asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform if his attention has been drawn to the proposal by the Property Registration Authority to destroy hundreds of thousands of documents, some dating from the 19th century, as part of the authority’s move towards e-conveyancing; if his attention has been drawn to the concerns about the plan expressed by historians and archivists at the loss of these documents; the discussions he has had with the authority on the plan; his views on asking the authority to review the plan and to consider the transfer of the documents to some other location, as an alternative to destruction; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
