I propose to take Questions Nos. 122 to 124, inclusive, together.

Under Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness, the Government is committed to a broad range of measures to tackle, among other things, some of the costs associated with the provision of housing in the interests of reducing construction overheads. This includes undertaking a detailed analysis, in conjunction with the construction sector, to consider all housing delivery input costs in Ireland, in order to facilitate an increased level of housing output into the future.

A working group, chaired by my Department, comprising a broad range of industry representatives has been established to consider all housing types in the domestic market, including apartments. Meetings took place in December and January and there is another meeting scheduled to take place this month. The group is scheduled to report by mid-2017.
