Seán Haughey (Minister of State, Department of Education and Science; Minister of State, Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment; Dublin North Central, Fianna Fail)
I again put on the record that the Department is fully supportive of this initiative. There are very definite dates involved - the scheme will be rolled out between 2010 and 2013. The administrative arrangements are being put in place at this time. The Department is fully supporting it and implementing this initiative is a very definite policy.
