Mr. T. Crowley: Information on Tadhg Crowley  Zoom on Tadhg Crowley  I desire to give notice that on the adjournment this evening I will raise the subject-matter of Question 14—the quantity of Irish creamery butter in cold storage.

[2140]An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Michael Hayes  Zoom on Michael Hayes  On the face of it, what the Deputy is raising is the Minister's refusal to state the quantity of Irish creamery butter in cold storage. Raising the matter on the adjournment will, I feel, result in a limited debate which will not satisfy the Deputy. I take it that he wants to raise something more than that. If the Deputy gives notice I will, of course, accept it, but I feel sure that he wants something more general.

Mr. Crowley:  This is a matter of such importance to a county like Limerick that I really want some further information on the matter from the Minister.

Mr. Hogan:  I can only repeat what I have already stated. I have no information of the nature required, and I could get none; I am not in a position to get any.

Mr. Crowley:  That is an extraordinary statement for the Minister for Agriculture to make—that he is not able to get any figures such as I have asked for.

Mr. Hogan:  I am not entitled to go to a private business man and ask him what stocks he holds. I am not a dictator.

Mr. Crowley:  You are a managing director of a large creamery concern yourself. You can get the information, and we are entitled to it.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Michael Hayes  Zoom on Michael Hayes  If this is the difference between the Deputy and the Minister now, what will the discussion be like this evening? However, I am accepting the notice.
