Question:

731 Mrs. T. Ahearn asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government the number of people who have a low rise mortgage with local authorities; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2083/99]

The information requested is not available in my Department. The low rise mortgage scheme was terminated in 1981 and the last payments of subsidy to local authorities in respect of loans issued under the scheme were made in 1994.
