Minister for Agriculture (Mr. Lenihan): Information on Brian Lenihan Snr.  Zoom on Brian Lenihan Snr.  With the permission of the Ceann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions Nos. 348 to 351, inclusive, together.

I have received the report referred to and I hope to introduce legislation shortly to make provision for extra capital for the company. I am not yet in a position to indicate the conditions to be attached to such capital. As the report relates to a company engaged in competitive trading, it is not my intention to have it published.
