Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport (Deputy Leo Varadkar): Information on Leo Varadkar Zoom on Leo Varadkar I propose to take Questions Nos. 669 and 670 together.

[979]In July last year, local authorities were invited by the National Roads Authority (NRA) to submit applications for consideration for funding in 2012 under the Specific Improvement Grants Scheme. According to the NRA’s online application system, Donegal County Council submitted an application for €350,000 in 2012 for Mulantiboyle Bridge, Co. Donegal. The Council were allocated €350,000 towards this project in 2012.

Should Donegal County Council anticipate that the allocation under any grant category will not be spent in full this year, they should inform the NRA of this at the earliest opportunity and the Council may seek permission from the NRA to transfer part of the allocation to an alternative specific grant project. Any such transfer of monies will be considered on its merits.
