Written answers (Question to Culture)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 340 and 341 together.

As indicated to the House in response to Dáil Question No. 658 of 1st October last, no capital projects completed by Department over the last 5 years have been valued at €100m or more.

I am also advised that my Department has no plans to undertake any capital projects for which exchequer funding greater than €100m is envisaged within the next 5 years.
