Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Imelda Munster (Louth, Sinn Fein)
There are more than 4,500 people on the housing waiting list in County Louth. The Rebuilding Ireland targets are to deliver just 1,074 homes between now and 2021. That leaves a shortfall of more than 75% without even taking into account those families who will come onto the housing list between now and 2021. Despite the Government's protestations, Rebuilding Ireland is clearly not working because the figures are there to prove that. Does the Tánaiste accept that only the roll-out of a policy to provide public housing on public lands with public finances will solve this crisis?
