asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries if he is aware of the statement of the director of An Foras Talúntais at the recent annual congress of the Agricultural Science Association that at least one educational institution should now be totally oriented as a co-operative college to provide short and long term courses for all concerned in the co-operative effort; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I have seen a Press report of the statement referred to. I have not, however, been approached by any co-operative interests in this matter.
