Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

No reports have been received by my Department of lobster or crab pots being damaged on the date and at the location referred to by the Deputy. I understand from the Deputy that her question relates to her concern regarding a possible naval presence in the area. Questions regarding military matters should be directed to the Minister for Defence.
