Written answers (Question to Public)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 237, 239 and 240 together.

Due to the nature of their roles, neither my Department nor the bodies under its aegis, with the exception of the Office of Public Works, have projects under Project Ireland 2040. The main purpose of the capital investment undertaken by my Department is to deliver greater effectiveness and efficiency across the Civil and Public Service, primarily through the development of cross-government ICT systems.

The Office of Public Works will respond directly to the Deputy in line with Standing Order 42A.
