Mr. Creed: Information on Donal Creed Zoom on Donal Creed asked the Minister for Local Government if he is aware that the Southern Committee of the Cork County Council applied for a loan of £65,000 from the local loans fund for a number of water supply and sewerage schemes at 24 different locations throughout the South Cork district; and that notification has now been received from his Department that the proposed loan of £65,000 has been reduced to £35,000; and if, in view of the serious consequences of this reduction, he can now reconsider his decision.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C.

Mr. Treacy: Information on Seán Treacy Zoom on Seán Treacy asked the Minister for Local Government when he expects to give approval to the revised report and estimate for the Knockgraffin infill water supply scheme, County Tipperary.

Mr. Gilhawley: Information on Eugene Gilhawley Zoom on Eugene Gilhawley asked the Minister for Local Government if he will recommend the extension of the Sligo water supply from Carrowroe national school, County Sligo to serve three families in the immediate vicinity as far as Bretts opposite Carrowroe Catholic church on Ballygawley Road.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney I am informed by Sligo County Council that as the existing extension at Carrowroe has adversely aflected the borough water supply, their proposals for this further extension cannot be implemented at present. I understand, however, that the matter will be further considered at the next meeting of the county council.
