I thank the Minister of State for taking this matter on behalf of the Minister for Justice and Equality. It is somewhat ironic that she is in Templemore when we are discussing working conditions for gardaí, particularly those now coming out of the college.

I am concerned that we cannot indicate when the process will be completed and that no site will be identified. This would mean that there would be a sticking plaster solution, with minor works being carried out in the existing station, meaning gardaí and other staff will be kept there for longer than is necessary. Will the Minister of State relate to the Minister for Justice and Equality the need to offer the public some indication as to when the process will be completed? As I said, it is only one part of a very long process which will involve acquiring a site and building works.
