Written answers (Question to Public)

The Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform has received representations from his Ministerial colleagues in respect of the funding of the repair of the weir and fish pass at Fermoy, County Cork. The Deputy may wish to note that when it comes to capital spending and the procurement of individual capital projects, I am responsible for setting the overall five-year multi-annual capital expenditure ceilings and for allocating these resources across different Departments. Decisions on how and where these allocations are then invested by individual Departments are a matter in the first instance for the relevant Minister, in line with the conditions of delegated sanction specified by my Department.
