Written answers (Question to Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs)

I announced the extension of the rural social scheme to the remaining Leader companies, including Rural Dublin Leader, on 28 September. The allocation of places on the scheme to particular areas, covered by a Leader company, will depend on the proposals put forward for projects and the availability of participants to work on these projects in that area.
