The Minister will be familiar with the amendment calling for an analysis or review of the funding under different headings that my predecessor, Deputy Carthy, brought forward for a number of years. Has there been an analysis by the Department of the money that is provided every year and where it is going? Do the sectors provide a breakdown of what they spend it on, line for line? It is taxpayers' money at the end of the day. For transparency and accountability, is there something given back to the Minister showing how they spend it, line for line?
