Written Answers. - Cashel (County Tipperary) Rehousing.

394.

asked the Minister for the Environment the number of applicants for rehousing in Cashel, County Tipperary; and the steps he is taking to provide housing for all those in need.

The most recent information available to my Department from Cashel Urban District Council is that at 30th September, 1977, they had 43 applications for rehousing on hands.

It is a matter for the council, in the first instance, to formulate proposals for meeting their ascertained housing needs. I understand that they intend to submit revised plans for a housing scheme to me next month.
