Department of Social Protection
202. To ask the Minister for Social Protection the planned use for the newly refurbished former social protection office (details supplied) in County Mayo; the cost of the refurbishment; the expected ongoing running and maintenance costs of the building; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [28611/15]
Upon completion of refurbishment works in Government Buildings in Ballina in February 2014, the Department relocated all staff and public services from the former Social Welfare Office at Bohernasup, Ballina to the new INTREO office at Government Buildings. While the building is still used for the Department’s off-site storage requirements in the area, the Department is a minor tenant in the building and does not hold the information requested. As such, the specific issues raised in the question are a matter for the major tenant, the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, or the Office of Public Works.
