Vol. 171 No. 10

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Barley Imports.

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.

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.
