I refer to the reply to Question No. 313 of 1 October 2003, which set out the position on the funding of central heating in Dublin City Council housing stock.

Apart from the specific programmes outlined such as for remedial works, area regeneration, re-development and so on, there is no specific funding mechanism available from my Department at present for the installation of central heating in local authority rented dwellings and Dublin City Council is aware of the position in this regard.
