The proposals in which the Deputy is interested relate to main roads. The formulation of proposals for execution under the Main Road Improvement Grant of £109,560 made available to the Kerry County Council in the current financial year is a matter in the first instance for the local authority. To date the local authority have submitted only one proposal for execution under that grant to my Department and the submission of their further proposals is awaited.
