Written answers (Question to Housing)

I have had no direct contact yet with my counterpart in the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.

However my Department, through the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), has entered into an agreement with the US National Park Service whereby Killarney National Park and Glacier National Park, Montana, are becoming 'sister parks'. This will establish close links and allow for the sharing and development of best practice in the management of the parks.
