Written answers (Question to Housing)

I brought a Memorandum to Government on an enhanced Defective Concrete Blocks Grant Scheme on the 30 November 2021. It included an unprecedented suite of improvements to the current scheme. Government approved the enhanced scheme which it was estimated would cost approximately €2.2Bn.

I aim to bring the required primary legislation to give effect to the enhanced scheme before the Oireachtas in the coming weeks and arrangements for the implementation of the new scheme will be finalised in parallel with the development of the legislation.
