Written answers (Question to Housing)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 57 and 62 together.

Details of the number of houses that have been built and acquired by local authorities, including in counties Cavan and Monaghan, in each of the years 2013 to 2017, are published and available on my Department's website at the following link: http://www.housing.gov.ie/housing/social-housing/social-and-affordble/overall-social-housing-provision.  These details in respect of 2018 will be published on a quarterly basis as soon as the collection and validation process for the statistics is completed.
