My Department will reprofile €4 million, representing less than 1.5% of its overall capital allocation for 2019, to support the additional costs arising this year on the National Children’s Hospital project. In this regard, my Department will manage the timing of payments relating to a small number of projects, while ensuring that contractual commitments are met and service delivery is maintained.
