CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - SUBSIDY TO LOCAL AUTHORITIES.

To ask the Minister for Local Government whether, in view of the fact that urban centres will shortly be considering estimates for the financial year 1923-1924, he is yet in a position to state if a subsidy will be given to Local Authorities to enable them to build artisans' houses.

The policy of the Government in regard to housing during the coming financial year is under consideration, and an announcement on the subject will be made shortly.
