Vol. 136 No. 2

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Price for Cockerels.

asked the Minister for Agriculture if he is aware of the grave concern occasioned to poultry producers by the delay in announcing the fixed price for fat cockerels for the coming season and further whether an announcement may be expected in the near future.

Mr. Walsh

The answer to the first part of the question is "No". As regards the second part of the question, I propose to make an announcement on fowl prices within the next few days.

Is the Minister not aware that there is considerable uneasiness amongst poultry producers because of the very unsatisfactory price?

Mr. Walsh

I am not so aware.
