708. Dr. O'Hanlon asked the Minister for Social Welfare the date on which an application was made to the European Commission to participate in the current poverty programme; and if he will list the  schemes which it is hoped will benefit from any allocation.
Minister for Social Welfare (Mr. B. Desmond) Barry Desmond
Minister for Social Welfare (Mr. B. Desmond): Projects for inclusion in the EC poverty programme have not yet been submitted to the EC Commission. The interim board of the Combat Poverty Organisation have been requested to recommend the projects which they consider most suitable for inclusion in the programme. Following the board's report a list of projects will be forwarded to the Commission which will then make its own  selection. It is not possible, however, at this stage to indicate the projects which will be included in the programme.
