NOTE: Figures are provided for expenditure on the forestry schemes available under the Forestry Programme as these are funded out of the Department’s capital budget. The amounts entered as ‘drawn down’ are the amounts paid on the relevant forestry contracts to end of 2018 (as the breakdown by county of amounts paid to date in 2019 is not currently available).

As regards the twelve State Bodies under the aegis of my Department, the information requested is an operational matter for the State Bodies themselves. I have referred the Deputy’s question to the Agencies and have requested that a response should issue within 10 days.
