I propose to take Questions Nos. 141 and 159 together.

The total allocation for my Department in the Estimates set out in the Budget Book for 2010 is €28,818 million. This is an overall decrease of 11.8% on the 2009 Revised Estimate allocation.

The following table details the programme changes to achieve the savings by my Department in the 2010 budget.
