Seymour Crawford


526 Deputy Seymour Crawford asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government the progress made regarding the housing remedial work scheme for an estate (details supplied) in County Monaghan; his views on the fact that the moneys had been allocated for this some time ago and that it is vital that the valuable work that has already been carried out is recommenced at the earliest possible date, not only for the rented houses but for those privately owned; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

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

The estate in question has been designated for funding under my Department's Remedial Works Scheme. The pilot phase of the project has been completed. The overall proposals for the remaining dwellings are now being examined in my Department in relation to their scope and suitability as well as indicative costings and implementation, and a response will be made to the Town Council as soon as possible.
