Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Social Welfare Benefits Data
918. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection the number of recipients of fish assist; the amount paid by county in each of the years 2010 to 2018 and to date in 2019, in tabular form; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [31204/19]
A breakdown of the number of recipients of Fish Assist by county in each of the years 2012 to 2018 and to date in 2019 is detailed in the attached tabular statement. I regret that expenditure on Fish Assist is not segregated from overall expenditure on Jobseeker's Allowance, so that I cannot provide the corresponding expenditure figures.
The number of recipients by county at the end of December in each of the years 2012 to 2018 and to date in 2019
