Mr. Gallagher Mr. Gallagher
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment and Local Government (Mr. Gallagher): The administration of the local  improvements scheme, including the selection and prioritisation of projects to be funded under the scheme, is entirely a matter for individual county councils, subject to the terms of my Department's local improvements scheme memorandum.
