Written answers (Question to Environment)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 435 and 436 together.

A total sum of €69,403.25 was received by the State, in 2012, in respect of the completion of the contract for the recovery as waste of the electronic voting equipment.

Expenditure on the electronic voting project, including equipment purchase, storage and other costs, totalled €54.986 million. There are no ongoing costs. Costs may arise in 2013 from the cessation of one storage lease.

Question No. 437 answered with Question No. 434.
