471. Deputy Darragh O'Brien asked the Minister for Health to provide a breakdown of the annual budget allocated from the drugs programmes and policy unit within his Department for each of the ten regional drug and alcohol task forces and each of the 14 local drug and alcohol task forces here in each of the years 2010 to 2016 to date; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19217/16]

 

Minister of State at the Department of Health (Deputy Catherine Byrne): In line with the National Drugs Strategy, my Department administers a Drugs Initiative which primarily funds community based drugs initiatives supported by Local and Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Forces. The budget allocation for the ten Regional Drug and Alcohol Task Forces and the fourteen Local Drug and Alcohol Task Forces for each of the years referred to by the Deputy is set out in the following table

 

The reduction in the budget allocated from the Drugs Initiative Fund in the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 reflects the fact that my Department transferred funding relating to Drug and Alcohol Task Force projects to the HSE in the amounts of €21.04m on 1st January 2014, a further €1.02m on 1 January 2015 and €331,829 in 2016.
