I propose to take Questions Nos. 182 and 183 together.

The 'Drugs Initiative' allocation of €6.987 million in the Department of Health's Vote for 2018 and 2019 was determined as part of the 2018 and 2019 budget and estimates process approved by the Government.

In 2018 over €5.25 million was allocated to Drug and Alcohol Task Forces by the Department of Health under the 'Drugs Initiative'. It is expected a similar amount will be allocated in 2019.

Drug and Alcohol Task Forces will be notified of their 2019 funding allocations by the Department of Health and the HSE as soon as the HSE National Service Plan for 2019 has been submitted and approved by the Minister for Health.
