There are no plans to relocate the Data Protection Commission (DPC) office located at Station Road, Portarlington, Co. Laois. I am advised by the Data Protection Commission that there are 29 staff members working at the Portarlington office across a number of teams (e.g. complaint-handling, investigations, etc.,) and they make a valuable contribution to the statutory functions and role of the DPC.

As the Deputy will be aware, the Data Protection Commission also has an office in Dublin.
