Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 926 and 927 together.

The Shanbally Housing Association sought and obtained approved status under the Housing Acts from my Department on 18 September 2003. To date no funding has been sought from my Department through either Cork City Council or Cork County Council in relation to the development of affordable or social housing by this association.
