Written Answers. - Water Conservation Measures.

  234. Mr. Perry asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government the funding that will be made available to local authorities in Counties Sligo and Leitrim to install water saving devices in all local authority housing; when the funding will be put in place; the amount allocated; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [31872/04]

  Mr. Roche: Low-cost water saving devices are readily available should local authorities wish to provide them in their housing and it is not considered necessary to allocate [529] specific additional funding towards their provision. Where a local authority includes water saving devices in new local authority housing or in existing local authority housing which is being repaired under the remedial works programme the cost may be met from the capital allocation.
