This question is more appropriate to my colleague the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government as the allocation of funding to housing schemes is primarily his policy responsibility. 

The Deputy may be aware that the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government already set out in his answer to PQ 25232 that he had received sanction to increase the funding of the Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan Scheme by €363 million for the remainder of 2019, bringing the total scheme funding to €563 million. 

Any future changes to this or other housing schemes should be raised with the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government.
