Written Answers. - Publicly Owned Companies.

39. Mr. Bell asked the Minister for Finance the moneys provided in the public capital programme for the investment needs of publicly owned companies; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [16141/99]

Minister for Finance (Mr. McCreevy): The attached table shows, by sources of funding, the moneys provided for publicly owned companies in the 1999 public capital programme. The table shows investment by publicly owned companies on their own behalf, it does not cover bodies giving grant aid for investment by other parties.

These allocations provide for a substantial investment programme which will allow the companies involved to continue to make a major contribution to the development of the Irish economy.
