€213 million was allocated to GLAS in 2017 with €195.6 million of this expended. As per the Deputy's parliamentary question of 13th December last, €203 million has been allocated for 2018.

GLAS funding is fully committed for the duration of the scheme and payments in individual years may vary but will balance out over the lifetime of the scheme.
