I propose to take Questions Nos. 174 to 177, inclusive, together.

In relation to the number of requests made to Longford County Council and Westmeath County Council for private rented accommodation inspections in 2019, 2020 and to date in 2021, the information requested is not reported by local authorities to my Department and is not available.

Information in relation to the number of inspections undertaken in 2020 is currently being collated by my Department and will be available on my Department's website shortly. Inspection data in respect of 2021 is not yet available.

The number of private rental inspections undertaken by the two local authorities in 2019 is set out in the table below:
