asked the Minister for Local Government if he has yet given sanction to Dún Laoghaire Borough Corporation for the development and servicing of 150 sites at Ballybrack, County Dublin, which are due for part allocation to co-operative housing groups; and when he expects this contract to be placed.

I approved of the corporation's outline proposal for the development of 150 sites for private housing at the Ballybrack-Loughlinstown housing area on 9th August last, subject to certain suggested amendments. I understand from the corporation that a revised lay-out plan is being prepared by them, and will be submitted to me shortly. I am not in a position at this stage to say when a contract for this development work will be placed.
