Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
We are meeting the figures to which Deputy Munster's party signed up in the context of the original Rebuilding Ireland document and the all-party committee. In fact, the figures from the point of view of Rebuilding Ireland have been upgraded since then to 50,000 from approximately 47,000 extra social housing units.
I will get the Minister to respond directly to Deputy Stanley. I will raise the issue with him and outline the frustrations expressed by the Deputy today.
In relation to TEN-T funding, I do not think the Government could be accused of not investing in transport infrastructure in the west given some of the recent announcements in terms of road developments there. I will raise the question Deputy Fitzmaurice asked about TEN-T funding with the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Ross, and ask him where that specific issue is at, and the qualification criteria.
