I propose to take Questions Nos. 61 and 71 together.

I have indicated that the RAPID Programme should continue into the future under the new NDP and that its current refocused form provides long-term support for disadvantaged communities. It is proposed that the designation of Ballinasloe and Longford as RAPID Areas will continue.
