Order of Business
Ciarán Lynch (Cork South Central, Labour)
I wish to raise two matters that relate to the brief of the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, Deputy Gormley. It is unfortunate that he has just left the Chamber because he could have advised the Taoiseach on his reply.
The first question relates to the social housing (miscellaneous provisions) Bill. I believe the Minister, Deputy Gormley, is meeting tenants in Cork tomorrow who wish to purchase their homes. When will the legislation come before the House? It was included in the programme for Government and it was indicated that it would come to the House before the summer.
