Vol. 10 No. 12


I ask the leave of the Dáil to introduce a Bill to facilitate the provision of dwelling houses and for that purpose to authorise the making of grants to persons and local authorities providing such houses, to amend the Housing (Building Facilities) Acts, 1924, and to make other provisions contributing to an increased supply of dwelling houses.

The Bill passed last year dealing with building facilities was a real success. I am sure Deputies will be pleased to know that, and that the amount of money provided for the building of houses under the Bill is nearly exhausted. The points in which this Bill will differ from the last Bill are concerned with the removal of the restriction as to the selling price, and it is not proposed to reintroduce these sections dealing with building material.

Leave given to introduce the Bill; second stage fixed for Wednesday, 18th March.
