Written Answers. - County Monaghan Group Water Schemes.

552.

asked the Minister for the Environment if he will list the group water schemes in County Monaghan that have applied to his Department for a financial allocation; the date on which their application was made; the date on which it is expected they will be paid; and the reason for the delay.

It is assumed that the Deputy is referring to schemes for which grants have been sought by groups but have not been allocated to date by the Department. The information sought in respect of these schemes is as follows:—

Name of Scheme

Present Position

Magherarney

Survey sheets for this scheme were received in April 1983. A decision will be made at an early date on the allocation of grants for the scheme.

Lisnaroe Lane

Survey sheets and a design for the proposed scheme were received in August 1984 and are being examined.

Corfad

Survey sheets for this proposal were received in September 1984 and have been referred to the local inspector who will shortly call on the group to discuss the proposal in detail.

Magheracloone

Initial inquiries about the availability of grant assistance towards additional works in this completed scheme were made in 1982. The eligibility for second grants of the improvement works now proposed for the scheme is under examination, and a decision will be made in the matter as soon as possible

In the event of grants being allocated for these schemes, interim payments will be made on the basis of expenditure incurred on them, as certified by my Department's local inspector. The final payment will be made when the works have been completed satisfactorily and all grant requirements have been met.

There has been no avoidable delay in processing these proposals.
