[3025/12]

Minister of State at the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government (Deputy Jan O’Sullivan): Information on Jan O'Sullivan Zoom on Jan O'Sullivan Under my Department’s Social Housing Investment Programme, local authorities were allocated capital funding in 2011 in respect of a range of measures to improve the standard and overall quality of their social housing stock. The programme included a retrofitting measure aimed at improving the energy efficiency of older apartments and houses by reducing heat loss through the fabric of the building and the installation of high-efficiency condensing boilers. My Department is currently compiling detailed information in relation to the outputs achieved across all local authorities under the retrofitting measure in 2011. On the basis of a preliminary assessment of the figures, it would appear that in excess of 2,500 properties were improved under this measure.

[358]Information in relation to the amounts allocated and paid to each local authority in 2011 in respect of improvement works carried out under the retrofitting measure is set out in the following table:
