657. Deputy Eamon Scanlon asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the position regarding the upgrade of Tubbercurry Garda station, County Sligo; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [33397/19]


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 Garda accommodation and close cooperation thereafter 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.
