Written answers (Question to Defence)

The high level goal of Defence is to ‘provide for the military defence of the State, contribute to national and international peace and security and fulfil all other roles assigned by Government’. The Defence budget allocation provides mainly for pay and allowances, operational costs and capital investment across the Defence Forces and pensions costs for ex-members of the Defence Forces. There are no cross-Border initiatives provided for within this allocation.
