Select Committee on Social Protection
Estimates for Public Services 2020
Vote 42 – Rural and Community Development, and the Islands (Further Revised)
I thank the Deputy and would point out that 37% of people live outside rural towns and villages, on 96% of the landmass of the country. I know that because I was involved in the delivery of broadband in rural Ireland. Deputy Paul Donnelly is next.
