Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

Details of expenditure on the property referred to by the Deputy for 2004, 2005 and 2006 have been compiled and are set out below. The balance of the data sought, for 2001, 2002 and 2003, is still being compiled. The compilation of this detailed data for a three year period as requested by the Deputy is a time consuming and expensive process in terms of staff time as it has to be collated from a number of different sources and is largely held in manual format.
