There is no property in the specified locations under the direct control of my Department or the Office of Government Procurement, which is also part of my Department.

Most State property which vests in the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform under the State Property Act is controlled by other Government Departments and agencies and some of this property may be relevant to the Deputy’s request. Those bodies which control or administer this property would be best placed to reply to the Deputy.

In relation to the Office of Public Works, which is a body under the aegis of my Department, I can confirm that there are no state properties vested in the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform under the State Property Act in the specified locations.
