Mr. Spratt's colleague, Mr. Mullaney, said that Louth County Council had been told that a scheme was available and it could apply. Given the cost of the infrastructure involved, what is the maximum grant? The council does not want to go down a road that will have bad news at the end of it. Is it realistic for the council to apply under that scheme, as Mr Mullaney said? Will it qualify under that scheme and what is the maximum grant that can be allocated under that particular scheme?
