asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce the proposals he has to set up new industries in the Kenmare area of County Kerry where there is vast and increasing unemployment.

I would refer the Deputy to the reply to a similar question on 18th July, 1974. I have been informed by the Industrial Development Authority that in the meantime the local authority has purchased a four-acre site for industry in Kenmare. The IDA have also indicated that they are having preliminary negotiations with a firm which is interested in setting up on this site.
