I propose to take Questions Nos. 221 to 223, inclusive, together.

The social housing schemes referred to in the questions were funded under my Department's Capital Loan and Subsidy Scheme. This funding model involved local authorities accessing loan finance from the Housing Finance Agency to support approved housing bodies to deliver new social homes.

The loans provided by the Housing Finance Agency to Kildare County Council for these schemes are for a 30 years duration and with support from my Department. These loans are being repaid to the Housing Finance Agency by Kildare County Council in line with the terms and conditions of the scheme .

Question No. 222 answered with Question No. 221.
Question No. 223 answered with Question No. 221.
