Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions
The reason the cost went up is because in the middle of the year we enhanced the scheme. That is the reason.
As to the point Deputy Smyth made, as I stated a moment ago, I am well aware of the importance of the scheme.
If Deputy Connolly is concerned about the answer I gave, she would even be more concerned if I indicated a budget day decision three weeks before the budget. All of these matters will be dealt with on that day.
