asked the Minister for Agriculture whether applications have been received from brewers, maltsters or distillers for the importation of (a) malting barley and (b) barley for roasting purposes; and, if so, if he will state the price of such barley delivered in each case.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Barley Imports.
Applications have been received from brewers and maltsters for licences to import malting barley. No application has been received for a licence to import barley for roasting. I am not in a position to give details of the prices at which purchases have been made by the firms concerned.
