Question:

221 Mr. Killeen asked the Minister for Tourism and Trade the tourism product development studies, if any, that were carried out in 1995; and the studies, if any, currently under way. [2006/96]

In so far as my Department is concerned, the National Tourism Council, which operates under its aegis, commissioned some general research in 1995 on new tourism product opportunities. This research is nearing completion and the results are expected to be presented to the incoming tourism council when it is convened.
