226.

asked the Minister for Local Government when sanction will issue for raising a loan in respect of a new housing scheme at Tuam, County Galway.

Consideration of this loan application, which was received in my Department on the 18th of last month, is being deferred in the normal way pending the receipt of a proposal from the county council for the acceptance of a tender. I am not in a position, at this stage, to say when sanction will be issued to the loan application.
