Mr. Dunne

asked the Minister for Local Government if he will outline the up-to-date position of the proposed Ballinree and Boherlahan group water schemes, County Tipperary.

It is understood that the promoter of the Ballinree/Tubberadora group water scheme is completing survey sheets and plotting the location of the houses on a map. When these documents are returned to the Department the inspector will investigate the proposal.

In the Boherlahan/Cashel group water scheme 37 grants were allocated, all of which have been paid. More householders may wish to connect to the scheme and the Department's inspector is investigating this aspect.
