I propose to take Questions Nos. 142 and 143 together.

In relation to payments made by the State to the European Union and total payments received by the State from the European Union since 1973, these details are at Table 10 of the document “Budgetary and Economic Statistics” published by my Department in September 2011. The document can be obtained from the following website address:

http://www.finance.gov.ie/documents/guidelines/bessept2011.pdf

A copy of the Table 10 is set out for your convenience.

The Deputy should note that it has not been the practice to include research receipts paid directly to private entities in this table as these are collated in a different manner; however the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation have supplied the following figures, for awards to Irish participants in projects funded under the European Framework Programmes for Research and Development.
