Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. Yates): I have set out on the following table the number of young farmers who have qualified for farm installation aid in the years 1987 to end of February 1997. I am satisfied there are adequate funds to meet claims submitted for payment during 1997. In common with other schemes, this scheme will be reviewed in the context of the mid-term review of Structural Funds.
