Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
337. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government when the housing commission will be established as agreed to in the programme for Government; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44254/20]
The Programme for Government provides that:
The Government will establish a Commission on Housing to examine issues such as tenure, standards, sustainability, and quality of life issues in the provision of housing.
Further scoping is necessary as to the most appropriate type of structure for the Commission and to flesh out the issues that it will be tasked with examining. The establishment of the Commission will occur when these issues have been appropriately considered.
