Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
The Deputy will be aware that my Department has given permission to the Office of Public Works for the use of part of this holding as a Direct Provision centre which has been in operation for a number of years. My Department has not received any notification of the intention to vacate the premises.
The Deputy may wish to note that my Department together with the Defence Forces have commenced a review of the current training lands portfolio as committed to the White Paper. In the light of the above, it is not currently intended to dispose of these lands in the immediate future.
