Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
104. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if Ireland has requested under Article 25(3) of the RRF Regulation to redact information relating to Ireland's National Recovery Plan; if so, the nature of such redactions; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27100/21]
Work is well underway on preparing Ireland’s National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP), which is required to access funding under the European Union’s Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF), the centrepiece of Next Generation EU, the Union’s €750 billion response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
No decision has been made about redacting information under Article 25(3) of the RRF Regulation. This provides that Member States may request the Commission to redact sensitive or confidential information, the disclosure of which would jeopardise public interests of the Member State.
