Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Waterford Rural Cottages.

asked the Minister for Local Government if he will state the number of rural cottages erected by the Waterford County Council in each of the years 1952 to 1955.

The numbers of dwellings built by Waterford County Council in 1952, 1953, 1954 and 1955 were 63, 107, 88, and four respectively. These figures include 47 unserviced rural cottages erected by the council in 1952 and three such cottages erected in 1953.

asked the Minister for Local Government when the proposed rural cottage scheme of the Waterford County Council will be put into operation.

Proposals for the acceptance of tenders for 52 cottages were received in my Department on the 2nd instant and are at present being examined.

I am not in a position to say when work is likely to commence on the building of the cottages.
