Minister for the Environment (Mr. Howlin): As already announced, responsibility for the administration of the group water and sewerage schemes programme has been devolved to the local authorities. The allocation of grants is now a matter for local authorities, subject to existing commitments on foot of approvals issued by my Department. Block grant allocations for 1997 were notified to local authorities on 26 March last, taking into account the commitments made.
