Written answers (Question to Health)

The overall budget of the Food Safety Promotion Board/Safefood in 2013 will be €8.5m, pending approval of their business plan for 2013 by the North/South Ministerial Council. As the agreed contribution level is 30:70 North/South, it is expected that my Department’s contribution to their budget will therefore amount to €5.95m.
