Ceist:

173 Mr. Lowry asked the Minister for the Environment if he will give details of the capital allocations for housing and sanitary services made to Tipperary North Riding County Council and the Urban District Councils of Thurles, Nenagh and Templemore for each of the years from 1980 to 1990; and the number of houses completed in each year by each authority.

In so far as capital allocations for local authority housing construction are concerned, I would refer the Deputy to the replies to Question No. 34 of 4 May 1989 for the period 1980-88, Question No. 252 of 25 April 1990 for 1989 and Question No. 114 of 13 March 1990 for 1990.

Housing completions for the years 1980-87 were given in the reply to Question No. 218 of April 1988. Housing completions by the authorities referred to in 1988 and 1989 were as follows:
