I propose to take Questions Nos. 2322 and 2408 together.

Deputy, the Capital Allocation for the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport for the years 2019 to 2022 can be found in the recently published National Development Plan 2018-2027 http://www.gov.ie/en/project-ireland-2040/. We do not have a capital allocation yet for 2023 and 2024.

As part of Budget 2019, it was agreed between my Department and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform an amount of €30 million could be transferred from our Capital allocation and used to alleviate pressures on our current expenditure. Our original figure for 2019 was €1,643m.
