Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment (Ms. Coughlan)

As the Deputy will be aware, budgets committed to all Departments are currently under review. The outcome will be reflected in the announcement of the Minister for Finance on 7 April next. Any adjustments announced then will reflect the funding priorities agreed by the Government. Accordingly, I am not in a position to answer the specifics of the Deputy’s question at this juncture.
