  Mr. Roche:The Adare and Patrickswell sewerage scheme is being advanced as a grouped project and is included in my Department’s water services investment programme 2004-06 to commence construction in 2005. My Department has approved Limerick County Council’s brief for the appointment of consultants to prepare detailed design and contract documents for both elements of the scheme. The council’s fee proposal for the selected consultants is under examination in the Department and will be dealt with as quickly as possible.
