56. Dr. Upton asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs if, having accepted that Ballyfermot was wrongly excluded from strand 1 of the RAPID programme, he has addressed the situation to allow for its inclusion; if he has any further plans to expand the RAPID programme; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Éamon Ó Cuív:I have no plans at present to expand the geographical boundaries of RAPID areas. However, as I have stated previously, there appears to be an anomaly in relation to Ballyfermot, which despite meeting the criteria for inclusion in strand I of the programme, was omitted due to its inclusion in the URBAN II programme. I have met representatives from Ballyfermot in relation to this issue and I am awaiting their proposal.
