Social Welfare Benefits
John Moloney (Minister of State, Department of Education and Science; Minister of State, Department of Health and Children; Minister of State, Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment; Minister of State, Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform; Laois-Offaly, Fianna Fail)
The Senator is obviously closer to this matter than I am. The script which I was charged to deliver indicates that the aim is to secure a suitable premises. The Senator lives in the area and is aware of the actual position. In such circumstances, I will undertake to arrange a meeting involving the Senator, the Minister and me, which will take place following the Easter recess, in order that this matter might be teased out. The Senator will be in a position at that point to furnish to us the information in his possession. This will assist in ensuring we will be in a position to provide a premises out of which both services might be made available. I will inform the Senator next week as to the time and location of the meeting to which I refer.
