Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The data requested by the Deputy is set out below. Further to Parliamentary Question 133 of 30 November 2021, exports of peat to Northern Ireland are included in the data for the Rest of the World. Table A below sets out the data for Northern Ireland. The data for 2021 to date is not included in the table as some of the data relating to this product which has been received by CSO is inconsistent with previous returns received. CSO has contacted the traders involved, via the VIMA branch of the Revenue Commissioners, to ascertain the accuracy of this data. Once a reply is received from these traders, and the data is either validated or corrected, it will be available for publication.
