Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 267 and 273 together.

There are no plans to provide additional funds by way of humanitarian aid for those affected by the landslides at Pullathomas, Ballina, County Mayo. The funding of protective barriers is not a matter for the Office of Public Works. The question of State funding, if any, is more appropriate to the local authority and/or the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government.
