On Tuesday, 10thJanuary, in partnership with the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Planning, I hosted a Housing for All Stakeholder Conference.

The objective of the conference was to consult with a diverse range of stakeholders to consider possible further actions which might accelerate or enhance the delivery of Housing for All.

The conference was one of a range of engagements with stakeholders in the housing sector which I have undertaken since becoming Taoiseach. It was a collaborative session during which a broad range of topics were discussed across the four pathways in Housing for All.

Suggestions and policy ideas generated from the Conference and other ongoing stakeholder engagements will be considered by the Cabinet Committee on Housing in the coming weeks.

The organisations from which representatives participated in the Conference are listed below.
