I propose to take Questions Nos. 62 and 65 together.

The arrangements for the preparation of the centenary commemorative framework will be announced shortly.

These arrangements will provide an opportunity for the views and suggestions of all interested persons and bodies in Ireland and abroad to be considered.

It is expected that there will be many Independence related commemorative initiatives organised on a sectoral, local and regional basis in the coming years, which could be included in the national programme where appropriate.
