Vol. 111 No. 9

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Dublin Potato Market.

asked the Minister for Agriculture whether he is aware that growers who received licences to export early potatoes from Waterford and elsewhere are dumping these potatoes on the Dublin market in competition with Rush and Skerries growers who received no export licences because of the understanding that the Dublin market would be reserved for them; and, if so, whether he will state what action he proposes to take to protect the interests of the Rush and Skerries growers.

I appreciate that there may be an element of urgency in this question, but I ask the Deputy to consider whether he would not be prepared to leave it over until next week, when the Minister for Agriculture hopes to be back.
