I propose to take Questions Nos. 155 and 156 together.

The Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs) are the ‘first-stop-shop’ for providing advice and guidance, financial assistance and other supports to those wishing to start or grow their own business.

Details of the number of LEO supported clients and of the number of jobs in micro-enterprises supported by the LEOs for 2016 and 2017 is shown in the following tables on a county basis, including the four LEOs in Dublin.

Please note that the relevant details for 2018 will not be available until the results of the annual employment survey of LEO clients is completed in Q1 2019.
