Written answers (Question to Jobs)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 109 to 111, inclusive, together.

Quarterly progress reports on the Microenterprise Loan Fund and the SME Credit Guarantee Scheme are published on my Department’s website www.enterprise.gov.ie. The progress report detailing the analysis and performance of both Schemes for the quarterly period ending 30th June 2013 is available on my Department’s website. I intend to publish the next progress reports to end September 2013 by mid-October, when the reports have been finalised.
