Written Answers. - Child Care Projects.

Michael Bell

Question:

96 Mr. Bell asked the Minister for Equality and Law Reform the number of child care projects approved by him for County Louth in each of the past five years; the comparative figures for the previous five year period; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10693/97]

I have approved eleven child care projects in County Louth under the Pilot Child Care Initiative, which I introduced in my Department in 1994. The question of comparative figures for previous years does not arise.
