Vol. 321 No. 11

Written Answers. - Kerry Unemployment Assistance Recipients.


asked the Minister for Social Welfare the number of people in receipt of unemployment assistance in County Kerry residing in county council cottages who have not yet received the increase granted in this year's budget.

Statistics are not kept of the number of smallholders on unemployment assistance who reside in county council cottages.

Those whose means for the purposes of the scheme are assessed on a notional basis and who were not entitled to the general increases awarded in April, may apply to have their means assessed on a factual basis which will entitle them to the increased rates of payment.

Each smallholder on notional assessment has been issued with a letter informing him fully of the position.
