I wish to confirm to the Deputy that the re-scheduling of capital monies to accommodate the additional costs associated with the National Children’s Hospital this year will not impact on my department’s Budget. Accordingly the capital allocation for use by my Department in 2019 is €620m as published in the 2019 Revised Estimates Volume.
