312. Deputy Jackie Cahill asked the Minister for Justice and Equality his plans to provide a motorcycle shed, locker room and changing facilities for female staff at Nenagh Garda station; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27556/19]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is primarily responsible for the effective and efficient use of the resources made available to An Garda Síochána. This includes responsibility for the identification of requirements in relation to the Garda accommodation and close cooperation with the Office of Public Works (OPW), which has responsibility for the provision and maintenance of the Garda estate.
I have asked the Garda Commissioner for the information requested and I will write directly to the Deputy when I receive it.
