Written answers (Question to Arts)

I refer the Deputy to my reply to Question No. 379 of 28 February 2013, where I detailed my Department’s response to the recent reports of seal deaths around our coast, including co-operation with the Irish Seal Sanctuary.

I will arrange for officials of my Department to meet with the Irish Seal Sanctuary in order to discuss further options for co-operation in this matter.
