Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers (Resumed). - Local Authority Housing Statistics.

224.

asked the Minister for Local Government in respect of each local authority area (a) the number of local authority houses completed in 1970; (b) the estimated number of local authority houses due to be completed in 1971; and (c) the number of approved housing applicants awaiting rehousing.

As the reply is in the form of a tabular statement, I propose with the permission of the Ceann Comhairle to have it circulated with the Official Report.

Following is a statement of the number of local authority dwellings completed in 1970-71 and the estimated number which housing authorities expect to complete in 1971-72:
