Written answers (Question to Public)

The table below outlines the aggregate of the budget allocated to capital expenditure, the amount spent and the quantum of carry-forward for the full years 2012 and 2013. The allocation for 2014 and spend to end June are also provided.

In aggregate terms the capital budgets for 2012, 2013 and 2014 were €3.9bn, €3.4bn and €3.3bn respectively. When carryover is taken into account, spend has been generally on profile.

In relation to the current year, at end June a total of €955m in gross voted capital (almost one third of the allocation for the year) had been spent. This is broadly in line with expenditure patterns for previous years.

In addition €105m of the 2013 carryover amount has been spent at end June this year.
