I thank the Deputy for the question. We are seeing jobs growth in every region of the country because of the measures the Government has implemented under the Action Plan for Jobs. Today the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Deputy Humphreys, is launching one of the first of her regional action plans for jobs with a more detailed focus on regions of the country that are not doing as well as others to help increase job creation. It is important to note that, with the urban and rural regeneration funds, hundreds of millions of euro will be spent and investment has been granted in the Deputy's own area to regenerate towns and areas in order that more people will come to live and work in them. Over the course of the next 20 years, of the additional 1 million people who will be living in the country, 75% will be living outside Dublin. That is why we have the regional spatial economic strategies being finalised to plan and manage that growth-----
