Vol. 430 No. 8

Written Answers. - Purchase of New Ferry.

Jim Mitchell


218 Mr. J. Mitchell asked the Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications if he is supporting an application by the Irish Continental Group to the EC for the purchase of a new ferry; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I would refer the Deputy to my replies to similar questions on 27 April and 5 May 1993 in which I confirmed my support for EC funding of external access transport sevices, with specific priority being sought for direct Ro-Ro and Lo-Lo shipping services to the European mainland.

I have nothing further to add to my recent replies which dealt comprehensively with this issue.
