The Office of Public Works (OPW), which comes under the remit of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, is responsible for the renting, leasing and hiring of office space for Government Departments, including the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport. Accordingly details of the cost of any such rent, lease and hire is a matter for the OPW.

The renting, leasing and hiring of office space for public bodies under the aegis of my Department is a matter for those bodies and accordingly I have referred the Deputy's question to them for direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 working days.
