The letter will be on one issue, namely, WIT.
No. 1719B is from the Higher Education Authority providing details of the employee assistance help lines, which we will note and publish.
No. 1721B is from the Housing Agency and follows up on our previous meeting. We will note and publish this correspondence, which provides very good information. I thank the agency for supplying it. It gives details, by local authority, of the provision of social housing, the number of offers made by NAMA and the 2,475 housing units that were taken up by local authorities as a result. It also provides details on the €70 million funding the agency has been provided with in respect of local authorities. It sets out details, by local authority, of the 818 houses and apartments that have been completed and bids that are in the process of being accepted. It gives specific information on the 478 units that have been acquired and completed as part of that process, broken down between two, three, four and five bedroom houses and one, two and three bedroom apartments.
