Written answers (Question to Tourism)

I have been advised by Fáilte Ireland that an outdoor dining scheme is under development and has not yet been finalised. The development of such a scheme is an operational matter for Fáilte Ireland. Accordingly, I have referred the Deputy's question to them for further information and direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
