49 Mr. B. Smith asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government if he will approve the proposal to provide a sewerage scheme in Stradone, County Cavan; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10007/00]

The Stradone sewerage scheme is included in the list of schemes submitted by Cavan County Council in response to my Department's request to local authorities to undertake fresh assessments of needs for capital works in their areas and to prioritise their proposals on the basis of the assessments. The list submitted by Cavan County Council will be taken into account in the framing of the water services investment programme for this and future years under the National Development Plan 2000-2006, but without the benefit of the county council having indicated its priorities, as it was requested to do.
