Mr. S. Dunne: Information on Seán Dunne Zoom on Seán Dunne asked the Minister for Local Government the reasons why a housing reconstruction grant was refused in the case of an applicant (name supplied) who appeared to qualify for such a grant.

Mr. Blaney: Information on Neil T.C. Blaney Zoom on Neil T.C. Blaney A new house grant was paid in respect of this house in September, [41] 1951. The application for a reconstruction grant was rejected because the work was commenced within the limiting period of 15 years laid down in section 4 of the Housing (Loans and Grants) Act, 1962, and the nature of the works carried out was not appropriate for favourable consideration for grant purposes under subsection (a) or (b) of the section.
