Minister for Finance (Mr. MacSharry): I propose taking Questions Nos. 99 and 100 together.

The Commissioners of Public Works are continuing negotiations on a lease of premises at Leixlip, County Kildare for use as a Garda sub-station, accommodating four gardaí. With a view to determining the best and most economic way of providing the required accommodation, the commissioners are also inspecting a number of other premises which have recently been brought to their attention. It is not possible at this stage to say when the station will be in operation.
