57.

asked the Minister for Finance when the proposed development work on Skerries harbour, County Dublin, will commence.

58.

asked the Minister for Finance what is the present position regarding the extension of Skerries harbour, County Dublin.

With your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions Nos. 57 and 58 together.

Tenders for the work have been invited and are due tomorrow. A contract will be placed as quickly as possible.

Can the Parliamentary Secretary give me any information, assuming that the tender is accepted, as to the length of time before the work will commence?

I am sorry I cannot give the Deputy that information: I have not got it.

It is a separate question.

Would it not be part of the contract? Is there a time limit in the contract?

No contract has been made yet.

How do we ask for tenders then?

As I said, I have not got the information Deputy Foley asked for.
