Written answers (Question to Housing)

The commitments in relation to Constitutional reform in the Programme for Government provide for the holding of a referendum on housing.

My Department has begun the work of scoping what such a referendum might involve. Following this review, I intend to consult with my colleagues in Government as to the proposal that should be put to the electorate and the appropriate timeframes that should apply to the process.
