I propose to take Questions Nos. 65 and 66 together.

I am advised that NAMA has, since inception, approved €160m in new advances to Northern Ireland debtors; €55m had been approved to May 2012. As per my response of 18 February 2014 to Parliamentary Questions Nos. 212 and 213, 1% of the May 2012 total and 2% of the total to December 2013 were drawn down in Northern Ireland.
