Written answers (Question to Rural)

The report referenced in the Deputy's question refers to an organisation which received funding under the Dormant Accounts Fund and is also supported under the Community Services Programme.

Funding has been disallowed under the Dormant Accounts Fund and the recovery process is ongoing, as such it would be inappropriate for me to comment pending the outcome of discussions in that regard with the organisation concerned.

Regarding the Community Services Programme, a further more detailed report has been commissioned and is currently under examination within my Department.
