Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Housing Finance.


asked the Minister for Economic Planning and Development whether he favours as an inducement towards lessening dependence on publicly-financed housing, a special savings scheme of housing bonds in which the repayment of capital and interest would also be linked to an index of house-building costs.

I would be in favour in principle of any scheme which would lessen dependence on publicly-financed housing. If the Deputy will supply details of the scheme which he has in mind, I will be glad to have the matter examined.
