Mr. Naughten Mr. Naughten
 261. Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation the capital programmes contained in the national development plan and funded by his Department that have commenced in the constituency of Longford-Roscommon in 2000; the details of any such programmes; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17556/00]
Dr. McDaid Dr. McDaid
Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation (Dr. McDaid): The National Development Plan 2000-2006, which was published in November 1999, contains provisions totalling £862 million for programmes which will be of concern to my Department over the next seven years. Specifically, there will be £357 million for investment in tourism marketing, training and product, £85 million for additional investment in regional recreational and sport infrastructure and £420 million for local development initiatives under the social inclusion sub-programme, targeted at disadvantaged communities, drugs and young people at risk.
The implementation arrangements have still to be finalised in agreement with the European Commission, so it is not possible to identify services or capital programmes under the aegis of my Department on a county-constituency basis at this stage.
