  117. Mr. Hogan asked the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment the ownership of the grants awarded to and the future plans for a factory (details supplied) in County Leitrim; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15757/05]

  Mr. Martin:I have been informed by Leitrim County Enterprise Board, CEB, that the company referred to received approval for ten employment grants from Leitrim CEB in 1999 to a total value of €57,138. In accordance with established procedures, half of the grants approved were paid at the time the additional jobs were created. As the company ceased trading before the company became entitled to the remainder of the grants, no further grants were due and no further payments were made.

Neither I nor Leitrim County Enterprise Board is aware of the future plans for this factory.
