Written answers (Question to Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources)

The goals, objectives, strategies and outputs in respect of each of the areas under my Department's remit are set out in the Department's Statement of Strategy 2003 — 2005. This reflects Government priorities as set out in An Agreed Programme for Government and the shared agenda set out in the social partnership agreement, Sustaining Progress. The statement of strategy can be accessed atwww.dcmnr.gov.ie. My Department has begun work on the preparation of a new statement of strategy that will set out the strategic challenges and goals over the next three years.
