156. Mr. Kirk asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government if he will consider modifications to the regulations in relation to the grants scheme for a private water supply in order that, in a situation where the maximum grant was not paid, a subsequent application could be made within the ten years and the remainder of the grant paid.

Mr. Dempsey Mr. Dempsey
Minister for the Environment and Local Government (Mr. Dempsey): Last year, in accordance with a recommendation of the national rural water monitoring committee, I approved a reduction from ten to seven years in the eligibility timeframe for repeat applications for individual water grants. I have no proposals at this time to further modify the grant scheme.
