Written answers (Question to Rural)

I refer the Deputy to my reply to Parliamentary Question 622 for written answer on 4th December 2018.

That reply detailed the allocations for the schemes referred to by the Deputy, and set out the most up to date information on the expenditure position for the schemes in question.

As the final processing of payments takes place on a weekly basis, and the information requested needs to be compiled at a scheme level, the previously advised position remains the best information available at this time.

That information is detailed again in tabular form below. I have asked my officials to forward on the position for these schemes in the coming days, once final information following the next round of payments is available and compiled from overall programme expenditure figures.

As I stated previously, I am confident that the programme funding made available to my Department in 2018 will be fully utilised this year.
