Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 05 October 2017 [Draft] : 05 October 2017


Liam Kerr

Michael Oliphant talked about the distinct 2007 to 2013 programme. Another programme is now running for 2014 to 2020. Has there been any impact on those projects ...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 05 October 2017 [Draft] : 05 October 2017


Liam Kerr

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 05 October 2017 [Draft] : 05 October 2017


Liam Kerr

Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 05 October 2017 [Draft] : 05 October 2017


Liam Kerr
