140. Mr. Flood asked the Minister for Justice the plans, if any, she has to replace the Clondalkin Garda Station, Dublin 22, with a purpose-built facility in view of the fact that the present station is in a poor condition, overcrowded, incapable of meeting the needs of the 60 gardaí located there and of the members of the public who have reason to visit the station; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Justice (Mrs. Owen): I propose to answer Questions Nos. 137 and 140 together.
