Written Answers. - Forestry Review Group.

Éamon Ó Cuív


218 Éamon Ó Cuív asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry when the forestry review group was established; when its work will be finalised; and if he intends publishing this report. [2423/95]

Consultants were appointed in May 1994 to assist my Department in the drawing up of a strategic plan for the development of the forestry sector to the year 2015. The function of the consultants has been to carry out an assessment of various aspects of the sector and to furnish a report and recommendations.

When they are received I will be making proposals to the Government and, subject to its agreement. I would then publish the strategic plan. I would hope that this will take place before the summer.
