Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

Under the terms of their 2003-2004 licence, my Department has requested the Irish Coursing Club to provide particulars on the taking of hares — if any — on Valentia Island during the 2003-2004 season and on their subsequent release. This information is not yet to hand, but will be communicated to the Deputy as soon as it becomes available.
