Written Answers. - Departmental Expenditure.

Richard Bruton

Question:

79 Mr. R. Bruton asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment the way in which spending in the first six months of 2002 compares to the budgeted profile for spending for each major programme of her Department's spending; and her forecast for year-end overruns. [15104/02]

As expenditure for June is not yet complete, my response is based on the outturn for the first five months of 2002. The attached table outlines the relationship between profiles and expenditure on my Department's major spending programmes between 1 January and 31 May 2002. The overrun of €2,798,000 represents 0.67% of the profiled expenditure for that period. On present indications, I am not anticipating any year-end overrun in relation to these programmes.
