Minister for Finance (The Taoiseach): In the case of all new Government offices constructed by the Office of Public Works  it has been the policy to specify that the recommendations contained in the booklet, Access for the Disabled: Minimum Design Criteria, produced by the National Rehabilitation Board be followed.
In relation to older Government offices improved access for disabled employees has been provided in many cases and will continue to be provided in the remainder of such buildings as opportunities arise to do so.
