asked the Minister for Labour the date on which a youth employment grant will be sanctioned for an organisation (details supplied) in County Galway; the amount of the grant that will be paid; the total number of young people to be employed on the job; the total amount of money included in the grant for materials and for craft work; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

An application from the organisation in question is being considered at present. Before making a decision it will be necessary for an official from my Department to discuss the application with officials of the organisation. I am making arrangements to have this visit carried out at an early date and, as soon as I have a report, I will make a decision on this case.
