Written Answers. - National Lottery Allocations.

60. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for the Environment if his attention has been drawn to the plans for the development of the Newbridge athletic track, County Kildare; if he has received an application for funds possibly from the proceeds of the national lottery through Kildare County Council to complete development; if he will give favourable consideration to this application in the current year; if there are any funds other than from the proceeds of the national lottery available for such works; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for the Environment (Mr. Flynn): I have received an application for a grant under the amenity grants scheme for this project. If further national lottery funds become available for the scheme, I will consider the project for funding in conjunction with the many other applications which have been made. There are no other funds at my disposal from which I could assist the project.
