227. Mr. Andrews asked the Minister for the Marine the plans, if any, he has for the future of Dún Laoighaire Harbour in the context of a marina or marinas: and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8878/95]
 The essential base technical information, including detailed site investigation and comprehensive wave analysis, to facilitate the installation of marine facilities has been completed. The information obtained from these studies has been made available to interested parties.
Comprehensive consultations, through the recreational committee of the Dún Laoghaire Harbour Board, with harbour users and other interested parties, have elicited a number of potential development and recreational projects. The financial viability of some of these projects is being professionally assessed at the moment.
If these projects prove to be technically and financially viable and attract a reasonable degree of support, my Department will do everything in its power to facilitate their progression to the planning stage.
