Dear Deputy. We understand the that €7m referred to in your question is arrived at by subtracting the €304m in the which is the total of selected measures in the table shown on page 113 of the budget expenditure book from the table D. Reconciliation of 2022 Expenditure Ceiling on page 114 which shows €311m as the amount for 'Allocation of Additional Resources'

In fact, the finalised correct figure for new measures for 2022 is €318m

The table below shows the makeup of the areas to which new measures are allocated for 2022

** excludes 1m Winter plan funding listed in the 22m designated for mental health

***excludes 2m Winter plan funding listed in the 22m designated for Older Persons

**** excludes 2m Winter plan funding listed in the 22m designated for PCRS

Note- the Winter plan allocations (out of a total of €22m additional funding provided for Winter plan measures in Estimates 2022) should be considered provisional until the HSE has finalised its 2022 NSP

We have highlighted the discrepancy between the final €318m allocated in Estimates 2022 to new measures and the €311m listed in the Budget Expenditure book to the Dept of Public Expenditure and Reform and they agree that the final figure is €318m.
