Thursday, 7 November 1991
Dáil Éireann Debate
128. Mr. Carey asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food the number of agri-tourism grants paid in the mid-west region during (1) 1989, (2) 1990 and (3) 1991; and the reasons for the new conditions attaching to the current revised scheme.
Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. O'Kennedy): The number of grants paid under the agri-tourism scheme, which operated as part of the western package, in the mid-west region for the relevant years was as follows: 1989, nil; 1990, five; 1991, six.
In the new nationwide agri-tourism scheme introduced in 1991 under the operational programme for rural development the conditions were made less restrictive with a view to encouraging a greater number of people to participate.
