I could not agree more with the sentiments expressed by the Deputy. An amount of £2 million had to be reallocated and we received 25 per cent of it. I would have gladly accept the entire amount. In the context of this week's vote in Northern Ireland and the peace process, the Border region has potential in the tourism area which never previously existed.
In the past some people have not been shy about coming forward. For example, of the £13.6 million which was previously allocated, £10 million was received on the southern side of the Border. At that time projects to a cost of £40 million were submitted. This is a usual situation. Twenty-four capital product projects were approved and 18 marketing projects were approved, giving a total of 42 projects. However, 140 projects sought funding. Unfortunately, the money is not available, but I take the Deputy's views on board, namely, that any extra funding would be gratefully accepted.
