31. Mr. Spring asked the Minister for the Environment if he will provide funds to Kerry County Council to carry out a building programme to ensure that no dwelling houses in County Kerry will remain without bathrooms and toilet facilities.
Minister for the Environment (Mr. Flynn) Minister for the Environment (Mr. Flynn)
 Minister for the Environment (Mr. Flynn): I assume the Deputy is referring to local authority dwellings. The responsibility for the management and maintenance of such dwellings lies with the council. Last December, I approved their proposal to fund from internal housing capital receipts a programme for the provision of bathrooms to rural cottages which lack this facility. In addition, I have provided £245,000 to date to Tralee UDC under the remedial works scheme for the major refurbishment of pre-1940 houses at Mitchell's Crescent.
