Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
189. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the unallocated spend within his Department for 2017; the expenditure allocated to programmes in 2017 which are due to cease in 2017; the funds which will become available within his Department's expenditure profile in 2018 due to changes in demand for services and goods and or changes to costs within his Department; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [32410/17]
All of my Department’s budget is allocated before the start of the year and therefore it has no unallocated spend for 2017. There are currently no programmes due to cease in 2017.
Like other Departments, my Department has commenced the 2018 Estimates process and this involves a detailed review of the budget required for next year. Allocations for 2018 will be announced in the Estimates on Budget Day.
