Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Job Creation in Marine Area.

Since it is not a very complicated list, could the Minister give us the figures for the breakdown for fishing, aquaculture, fish processing and ancillary activities?More Button

I am surprised that the Minister does not have that information to hand.More Button

The question deals with job creation in the fishing industry and the programme goes on at great length about the alleged performance of the Government in this area over the previous three years. Is i...More Button

Stick to this programme. I am not asking about the previous programme.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Kowloon Bridge Damage.

As the question is quite specific, I cannot understand the reason the Minister of State cannot give a straight answer since it relates to a video film the contents of which are public knowledge. The ...More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Dumping of Fish.

I welcome the fact that the quantity of fish dumped has been reduced. Can the Minister of State say if this will continue to be the trend in 1991 and when can we expect to see this scandalous practic...More Button

Can the Minister of State give us any indication of the amount of fish which has been dumped so far this year, even if it is only an estimate?More Button

There is a desperate smell from dead fish.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Fishing Vessels Safety Procedures.

I am shocked by the Minister of State's reply. Does it not display an appalling attitude to and neglect of the issue of safety of fishermen at sea that the Minister of State at the Department of the ...More Button

If the Minister of State had any interest he would know the figure.More Button

Will the Minister state the approximate number of occasions last year on which safety inspections of fishing vessels were carried out by his Department and give some indication as to the availability ...More Button

How many last year?More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Coastal Protection.

Will the Minister confirm that EC money is available for coastal protection but that this country has not received any of that money and cannot get it because the Government did not include coastal pr...More Button

Since the Minister did not answer my earlier question directly, will he make an honest admission that this county is losing out on millions of pounds of EC money because of the Government's failure to...More Button

The answer is “no”.More Button
