Question:

470. Deputy Anne Rabbitte asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the number of projects that were refused funding by his Department in County Galway in each of the past five years; the reason for the refusal; the status of each project; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 469 and 470 together.

In response to the Deputy's questions, please see the following table.

In respect of refused projects my Department does not maintain, in any readily accessible format, the information sought by the Deputy.  Similarly my Department does not maintain information in relation to a county-by-county breakdown of funding provided for those years beyond the scope of the enclosed response.  To collate either of these categories of information would involve a disproportionate commitment of resources.
