Written Answers. - County Cork Disadvantaged Areas.

75.

asked the Minister for Agriculture and Food when he proposes to carry out a survey of County Cork disadvantaged areas with a view to making a submission to the EC to have these areas included in the disadvantaged areas scheme.

As I stated in reply to a parliamentary question on 3 June, the whole position in regard to the boundaries of the disadvantaged areas is being reviewed at present. The question of carrying out surveys in County Cork and elsewhere will be decided in the context of this review.
