Mr. N. Dempsey: My Department provides significant public funding for TG4 to enable it to provide an Irish language television service. The 2005 Estimates includes a provision of €24.858 million for TG4. Decisions in relation to the commissioning of programmes are a matter for TG4. I have no role in the matter.
