Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

The management of the forest estate is a matter for, and the responsibility of, Coillte as a commercial State Body and the information requested is an operational matter for Coillte. I have referred the Deputy’s question to Coillte and have requested that a response should issue within 10 days.
