Clarity sought on funding for Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan Scheme

A Sligo/Leitrim TD is calling for clarification about funding for a loan scheme that helps people seeking mortgages to buy a home.

Fianna Fail Deputy Marc MacSharry says he understands the Department of Housing has sought an additional €600m for the Rebuilding Ireland Home Loan Scheme up until 2021.

But he claims there is no indication if this will be approved or even when a decision will be made.

He says funding for the scheme is needed.
