The Expenditure Report 2020, which was published as part of Budget 2020, sets out proposed capital allocations in respect of my Department to 2022. These proposed allocations are presented in the following table and mirror those detailed in the National Development Plan.

The capital allocation of €150 million for 2020 represents a €12 million increase on the 2019 capital allocation. Further detail on the allocation of capital funding for 2020 across programmes and schemes will be set out in the Revised Estimates to published shortly by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform.

All future capital allocations for 2021 and beyond in respect of my Department will fall to be considered as part of the annual estimates processes.
