Vol. 136 No. 2

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - An Bord Iascaigh Mhara Trawler Repairs.

asked the Minister for Agriculture if he will indicate (a) what repairs to An Bord Iascaigh Mhara trawlers have cost, and (b) what catches they have effected since being acquired.

I presume the Deputy refers to the three high-sea fishing vessels recently purchased by the board. One of these vessels sustained damage on the way from Germany andthe cost of repairing the damage will amount to about £900. The value of landings of fish made by the other two vessels up to the 2nd February, 1953, was £2,898.
