To ask the President if he will state when it is proposed that the Boundary Commission shall be set up, and whether any negotiations have been entered into with the British Government on this matter.

As to the first part of the question I would refer the Deputy to the answer I gave to his question on this subject on the 17th January last, to which I have nothing to add.

As to the second part of the question the answer is in the negative. If one is permitted to comment I would say it is not in the interests of any of the parties concerned that a question of this sort should be put at this stage.
