The Taoiseach says the Government will consult with the Central Bank to continue funding the Rebuilding Ireland home loan scheme.

It was revealed yesterday that the scheme has run out of money.

The Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy will provide updates on the scheme and answer questions from the Oireachtas housing committee today.

Mayo Fianna Fail TD Lisa Chambers claims the Minister's interest in the Rebuilding Ireland scheme lasted only as long as the publicity.

Deputy Chambers claims she's had a number of young couples trying to access the home loan scheme to buy a home, but despite the application process, they're left waiting indefinitely.

She's calling on Minister Murphy to clarify when he discovered that the scheme is running out of funding, and why local authorities were kept in the dark.

Deputy Chambers says people who have applied and are eligible for the scheme need to know what the Minister is planning to do about it, and what support they will be getting.
