Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
138. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if European region development funding will be available to the northern and western region post-2020; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [53699/19]
The post 2020 Cohesion Policy Legislative package, which includes the combined European Regional Development and Cohesion Fund Regulation, and the Multi-annual Financial Framework, which sets the overall EU Budget for the next programming period, are still under negotiation and remain to be finalised. However, I can confirm that European Regional Development Funding will continue to be delivered in all of the regions post 2020, including the Northern and Western Region.
