As the Senator will see from my reply under the Water Services Investment Programme 2010-2013 , the question of funding for the Kilcummin scheme was not included; it was to advance through planning only. I have been conscious of Senator Moloney's representations on this matter and Kerry County Council and the Department's inspectors have not reached agreement on the unit costs of the scheme. It is up to the technical people in Kerry County Council to convince the Department's inspectorate that this is a viable scheme. If they reach agreement, we are in a position to look at the funding.
