I propose to take Questions Nos. 845 and 847 together.
Loughrea Swimming Pool and Leisure Centre Development Group submitted an application for funding for a swimming pool and leisure centre in February 1998 under the sports capital programme. The group was advised in April 1998 that its application was unsucessful. A new revised sports capital programme was advertised recently, and the closing date for receipt of completed application forms is Friday, 12 February 1999. Meanwhile, the group may also be eligible to submit up to date detailed preliminary proposals, including a feasibility study, through its local authority, for examination by my Department under the separate swimming pool programme. However, I would point out to the Deputy that the total budget of £3 million for 1999 for the construction and refurbishment of swimming pools is fully committed to projects under construction and to projects already approved and on which work is expected to commence shortly.
