Thursday, 25 February 1993
Dáil Éireann Debate
137. Mr. Hilliard asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry the way in which the figure £17.3 million is estimated under Vote No. 32 M.13; and the purpose for which this money is intended.
Subhead M3 — aids to farmers in certain favoured areas — is reduced as a result of the bringing forward into 1992 — by way of a Supplementary Estimate — of £20 million payments due in 1993. When this is taken into account the level of headage payments to be made in 1993 will be similar to that originally provided for 1992.
Subhead M13 — Leader and INTERREG — is intended to fund these schemes pending part recoupment by the EC Commission. The provision is confirmation of the Government commitment  to these rural development initiatives.
