Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed has said that to date no decision has been taken in respect of the options proposed for Sligo and other Regional Veterinary Laboratories.

He said:

“My Department completed an initial consultative process with all relevant stakeholders on the Working Group report (including on the options for RVLs) earlier this year. A cost-benefit analysis (CBA) of the various options proposed will be undertaken shortly. My Department has tendered for independent economic expertise to carry out this CBA and a tender award notice has issued.

“Any decision I make on the RVLs, including Sligo, will be informed by the consultative process and the outcome of the cost-benefit analysis.”
