Written answers (Question to Culture)

Details of expenditure by my Department and all Government departments are published by the Department of Finance on a monthly basis at:

https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/b40401-fiscal-monitor-september-2019/.

Expenditure for my Department to 30th September 2019 amounted to approximately €230 million; €38 million in capital funds and approximately €192 million in current funds.

While it is too early at this point in time to accurately forecast the full end of year outturn, I can advise that no significant savings are envisaged at present. All expenditure within my Department's vote will continue to be carefully monitored between now and year end to ensure the best use of available financial resources.
