Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Registration of Potato Premises.

asked the Minister for Agriculture if he will state the requirements which must be complied with by a farmer in order to secure registration of his premises for the purpose of having his potatoes inspected and officially sealed by the Department of Agriculture.

Application for registration under the Agricultural Produce (Potatoes) Act, 1931, must be made to my Department on the appropriate form. An inspection of the premises will then be arranged and if they are found to be well lighted, frost proof, equipped with a grader, a skip and a weighbridge and give sufficient space for the proper handling of potatoes registration will be effected.
