Written Answers. - Water and Sewerage Schemes.

Deputy Finian McGrath asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs when funding will become available for a group water scheme (details supplied) in County Mayo. [28683/09]

  Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív: Under the CLÁR Programme, my Department has already made substantial commitments under the water and sewerage schemes, and against the background of the current economic climate, these schemes were suspended to new applications in August 2008.

I am reviewing the Programme as a whole, having regard to demand, the funding available and the level of outstanding commitments. In this context, I am liaising with the local authorities regarding possible further group water schemes and I will give consideration to this when the relevant information is provided to me and in the context of the available resources.

In the case raised by the Deputy, I am awaiting information from the relevant local authority.

Question No. 365 withdrawn.
