asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state when it is proposed to uplift the old Schull-Skibbereen line and repair the road which was guaranteed to the heirs and successors of the rural district councils of Skibbereen and Schull.

I am informed that the lifting of the track on the Schull-Skibbereen branch railway line has been in progress for some time and is expected to be completed in the near future.

With regard to the second part of the Deputy's question the extent of the obligations of C.I.E. cannot be determined until an investigation has been made and this is being undertaken at present.
