For the information of the Deputy, there are six national parks. The following table sets out the capital allocations in respect of each national park since 2011, the year in which my Department as currently configured was established. Current allocations, i.e. ongoing staffing and other day-to-day running costs such as heating, lighting and property maintenance, relate to the wider regional operational costs of the National Parks and Wildlife Service of my Department and are not broken down at national park level.
