83. Mr. Clohessy asked the Minister for the Environment if he will consider requesting local authorities to have a radiator installed in the single bedroom of old people's dwellings which are attached to local authority housing developments in rural areas, as a backboiler heating system is already in place in these houses.
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly) Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly)
Minister of State at the Department of the Environment (Mr. Connolly): In the case of new dwellings for elderly persons, the provision of radiators is allowed when proposed by local authorities. In existing houses it is a matter for the authorities themselves as they are entirely responsible for the facilities in their dwellings.
