Department of Education and Skills
205. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the value of regional aid granted under the regional aid guidelines granted by her Department or agencies under the remit of her Department in each of the past seven years; the value by county or lowest possible NUTS level over the period; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [30895/20]
The EU Regional Aid Guidelines (RAGS) provide for enhanced rates of State Aid in the least economically developed areas of each Member State. The 2014-2020 Regional Aid Guidelines entered into force on 01 July 2014.
I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department has not received any such EU Regional Aid in the past seven years.
