Mr. Finlay

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government the number of town development schemes which have been promoted under the Town Development Act, 1952, and the total population to be rehoused thereby.

A number of schemes are under discussion between local authorities. Three have reached the stage of submission of concrete proposals to my Department, and these make provision for the rehousing of 46,500 people.
