Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
546. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the details of vacant sites, properties and land owned by his Department or by bodies and agencies under the aegis of his Department, in the Dublin City Council area; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36228/16]
In general the Office of Public Works is responsible for the procurement of office and other (accommodation) required for the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and accordingly the details of vacant sites, properties and land in the Dublin City Council area is a matter for them.
There are some instances where lands are owned by the Minister but are leased to State Bodies under the aegis of the Department. I will arrange for the details to be forwarded to the Deputy.
The position regarding property owned by the bodies and agencies under the remit of this Department is a matter for them. I have forwarded a copy of your question to them for a direct reply. If you have not heard from them within ten working days, please contact my private office.
