In line with the requirements of recent revisions to the Public Spending Code, my Department is undertaking a re-appraisal of the proposed acquisition of the property referred to by the Deputy.

In this regard, my Department is not in a position to execute contracts for the proposed acquisition at this time.  The property-owner has been informed of the position and further correspondence on this matter will issue to him upon completion of the re-appraisal process.
