354 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for the Environment the current position regarding the Erris regional water scheme in County Mayo. [16672/96]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 313 and 354 together.

Work on the Belmullet town distribution phase of the Erris regional water supply scheme has recently been completed. Having regard to the existing high level of commitments under the water and sewerage schemes programme, I cannot say when it may be possible to approve further phases including the extension to Bangor and Glenamoy.
