Written answers (Question to Environment)

There are no funds specifically designated under the Social Housing Investment Programme for the purpose of facilitating local authority tenants wishing to downsize. A number of housing authorities, in the context of the management of their overall social housing stock, have traditionally operated such schemes within their housing programmes.
