Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Cottage Purchase Scheme.

asked the Minister for Local Government whether he is aware that the Kerry County Council propose to initiate a cottage purchase scheme; and, if so, whether he will approve of the proposal at an early date.

It is open to the Kerry County Council to initiate as they may see fit any purchase scheme pursuant to the Labourers Act, 1936, and any such scheme submitted to my Department will be examined as sympathetically and expeditiously as possible.
