17. Mr. Molloy asked the Minister for the Environment if he will arrange for the immediate payment of a reconstruction grant to a person (details supplied) in County Galway.

Mr. Quinn: On receipt of notification of completion of work an inspection will be arranged with a view to payment of the sewerage grant, if in order.

Grants in respect of the building of a bathroom and a bedroom could not be allowed in this case because, contrary to a qualifying condition of the scheme, the work had commenced before an inspection of the house was carried out. Neither could grants in respect of the provision of a water supply and the building of a chimney be allowed as the Department's inspector reported that these facilities were already in existence in the house.

18. Mr. F. Fahey asked the Minister for the Environment the present position in regard to a £1,000 grant and mortgage subsidy application from a person (details supplied) in County Galway.

21. Mr. Molloy asked the Minister for the Environment if he will arrange for the immediate payment of a new house grant to a person (details supplied) in County Galway.
