asked the Minister for Local Government if he is aware of the urgent need for rehousing in Clonmel, County Tipperary; and if he will give sanction to the tender submitted to his Department from Clonmel Corporation for the erection of 118 houses without any further delay.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Clonmel (Tipperary) Housing Needs.
With regard to the housing need position in Clonmel I would draw the Deputy's attention to my reply, on 20th November last, to his Question No. 26 on this matter.
A proposal to accept a tender of £288,848 for the building of 118 houses at Cashel Road, Clonmel, was received in my Department last month and is under examination. I hope to be in a position to give a decision on the proposal in the near future.
