Written answers (Question to Public)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 217 and 218 together.

Due to the nature of its role, my Department has neither provided nor refused funding to projects in County Galway in the last five years. The main purpose of projects and associated investment undertaken by my Department is to deliver greater effectiveness and efficiency across the Civil and Public Service. While all counties ultimately benefit from my Department’s reform plans by delivering a more effective Civil and Public Service, any project expenditure is primarily invested in the Department's own ICT systems.
