I propose to take Questions Nos. 197 and 199 together.

The Office of Public Works (OPW) continues to progress the procurement of a suitable site for the new Garda Station in Sligo. The legal formalities are nearing completion.

Delivery of the proposed Regional Headquarters is to be provided under a Public Private Partnership. A timeframe for construction is not available as yet.
