Written answers (Question to Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine)

The Government has decided, in the context of the State asset disposal programme, that consideration would be given to the sale of Coillte, excluding the land. Work has been undertaken in the interim by NTMA/NewERA to determine the valuation of Coillte. While an indicative valuation has been received, further work is required to refine this.
