asked the Minister for Education the amount paid to RTE for educational programmes in 1973; the date and the amount of the most recent payments and the level at which such payments would now stand if it had been adjusted upwards for inflation since 1973.
Written Answers. - RTE Educational Programmes.
The amount paid in the financial year 1973-74 by my Department to RTE in respect of Telefis Scoile programmes was £81,000. In the financial year 1976 the amount paid was £60,000. I do not consider that an adjustment as suggested in the second part of the question could be made without advertence to the cost of the component parts of the programmes and I have not such information.
