Written answers (Question to Housing)

Work is at an advanced stage of development of the new scheme referred to by the Deputy. I expect that the process will be substantially completed over the coming month when the necessary regulations dealing with the financial assistance arrangements and related administrative matters are put in place. This will enable a circular letter, terms and conditions, guidance and the application form to issue to local authorities shortly thereafter.
