Question:

142 Deputy Brendan Smith asked the Minister for Education and Skills if he spent his entire capital budget in 2011; if any of this capital budget was carried over into the new capital budget for 2012 to 2016; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15315/12]

View answer

Total capital expenditure by my Department in 2011 amounted to €556m compared to the 2011 Revised Estimates Volume allocation of €501m — an increase of €55m. With the 2011 capital allocation more than fully expended there was no facility to carry over monies into the 2012 allocation.
