Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Rating of Turf as Agricultural Produce.


Mr. Browne

asked the Taoiseach if turf or bog peat saved for domestic fuel purposes is rated as agricultural produce.

Turf produced by farmers is generally regarded for statistical purposes as a part of agricultural output.

What about Bord na Móna? Is it not a fact that in the statistics which are produced the turf produced by Bord na Móna is also indicated as agricultural output?

No, it is not right.
