§ Mr. McGuire
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what is the amount of grant payable to new town development corporations which provide play areas, both indoor and outdoor, for children, particularly those under school age, with the usual facilities for parents of those in charge of the children.
§ Mr. Skeffington
No grant is payable to development corporations specifically towards the provision of such amenities. Play areas incidental to new housing development may, however, be admissible for subsidy under the Housing Subsidies Act, 1967.
