Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Manufacture of Nitrogenous Manures.

Major de Valera

asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce whether he is yet in a position to make a statement in regard to the proposals for the manufacture of nitrogenous manures in this country and whether he will give particulars of the proposals stated to be under consideration.

I have nothing to add to the reply I gave on the 8th March to a question of the Deputy's on the same subject.

Major de Valera

Might I ask whether these proposals are being pressed? It is more than a year since a question was asked about this matter and the same answer has been given at intervals over the period of 12 months. Is the matter being seriously considered?

The answer is yes.
