The expenditure ceiling for my Department’s Vote in 2020 will be determined as part of the budgetary process. Whilst the National Development Plan has allocated a total of €630 million in capital monies for my Department in 2020, which represents an increase of €10million on our 2019 allocation, the definitive capital and current expenditure allocations for my Department’s Vote next year will only be finalised in Budget 2020.
