336. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the progress made by the Interdepartmental Group led by the OPW in putting forward solutions and policies to deal with coastal erosion; if this group considered, as part of its work, necessary remedial work that need to be carried out in a small number of coastal communities along the coast where ever higher tides cut them off more frequently during spring tides stopping residents going about their daily business of going to work or school or services virtually making these place islands for a period; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The Government established an Inter-Departmental Group on National Coastal Change Management Strategy to scope out an approach for the development of a national co-ordinated and integrated strategy to manage the projected impact of coastal change to our coastal communities, economies, heritage, culture and environment. The Inter-Departmental Group is jointly chaired by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage and the OPW and is supporter by a technical working group. The Group will shortly submit its report containing options and recommendations for the Government's consideration.
