Hi Danny ,

Many thanks for providing this information.

Just to confirm you meant broiler houses and not "boiler houses".

Yours sincerely,

Gary Clarke

Dear FOI Invest Northern Ireland,

Sorry also just for clarification. The scheme would have been on the basis that Invest NI funded 40% of the loans. Would that therefore mean that Invest NI only made use of £752,953.20 of the £34.7m budget.

And is the scheme still open to new applicants?

Yours sincerely,

Gary Clarke

Dear Mr Clarke

 

FOI 1019

 

Many thanks for your email’s seeking clarification on our recent response,
in relation to your first email, I can confirm that Annex 1 should have
read " construction of new broiler houses" .

 

In terms of the second email below, The table in Annex 1 of the original
response represents loan amounts made by Invest NI.  Therefore Invest NI
has made loans of £1,882,383 to-date compared to a total budget for the
scheme of £34.7m.

 

The scheme is closed to new applicants.

 

Regards

 

Clodagh
