CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - HOUSING SCHEMES (PRIVATE BUILDERS).

asked the Minister for Finance if he will state whether the Government have yet considered the advisability of assisting private builders in any effort they may take to build houses containing three, four and five rooms; whether he is aware that private builders are prepared to build five houses for the same grant as is given to Municipal authorities for the building of two houses.

The question of reviving grants to private builders is at present under consideration.
