Written answers (Question to Rural)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 874 and 875 together.

My Department utilises capital funding to promote rural and community development and support sustainable communities.

The majority of capital funding is routed through local authorities who directly deliver projects utilising this funding.

I can confirm that my Department has not directly procured or delivered any capital project since its establishment in 2017.
