Written answers (Question to Housing)

The General Scheme of the Bill to establish the Land Development Agency (LDA) on a primary legislative basis was approved by Government and has now been published. It was referred to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government for Pre-Legislative Scrutiny which has been ongoing since the beginning of October.  I will consider the Pre-Legislative Scrutiny Report of the Committee in finalising the LDA Bill, which I intend to bring before the Oireachtas in the coming months.
