Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): The Chief State Solicitor's office has recently been in touch with the vendor's solicitors requesting them to forward the contract for sale of this building. Upon receipt of this contract my Department will arrange for it to be executed.

I am aware that this matter has been ongoing for some time. My Department is anxious to finalise the purchase as soon as possible.
