Question:

55 Miss Quill asked the Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications in respect of the years 1993 and 1994, the name of each of the ESB subsidiary and associate companies; the percentage of ESB holdings; the activity of each company; the total amount invested by the ESB in subsidiaries and associates by way of shares and loans; and the profit and loss position in each company. [8940/95]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 26 and 55 together.

As the ESB 1994 annual report and accounts have not yet been finalised, I am not in a position to provide the information required by the Deputies in regard to 1994.

ESB's total investment by way of equity and loans in subsidiaries and associated companies in respect of 1993 was £43.2 million. The remaining information in respect of 1993 is in the form of a tabular statement which I propose to circulate in the Official Report. Certain information of a commercially sensitive nature is not included as it may give an advantage to competitors.
