174. Deputy Catherine Byrne asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs  the details of the 2010 budgets for each of the local and regional drugs task forces; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (Deputy Pat Carey): The allocations from my Department to the 14 Local Drugs Task Forces and the 10 Regional Drugs Task Forces in 2010 are set out below in tables 1 and 2 respectively. The funding allocated will support nearly 500 initiatives that the Task Forces have prioritised for investment in their respective areas. In addition, I recently announced that funding of €600,000 is being made available for small-scale capital projects in the Task Force areas. Proposals in this regard are currently being developed by the Task Forces. I am satisfied that, with the funding allocated from my Department, the Task Forces will continue to make a positive impact on the drugs problem in their areas through their community-based initiatives.
