Written answers (Question to Environment)

I have no function in relation to the matters raised in the Question. My Department does not provide funding for Community Enterprise Centres or to the National Association of Community Enterprise Centres and has no information in regard to related employment matters. I understand that Enterprise Ireland, under the aegis of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, has a role in relation to the matters raised in the question.
