asked the Minister for Lands if he proposes to reintroduce the by-law prohibiting the use of ring nets in the sea between Dawros Head and Bloody Foreland, which was repealed by by-law No. 490 of the 28th June, 1956.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Use of Ring Nets.
No reasoned case has been made to my Department for reimposing restrictions on ring-netting for herring since the by-law referred to by the Deputy was revoked by my predecessor. If the Deputy is in a position to submit such a case, I will consider it.
Is the Minister aware that Fianna Fáil candidates prior to the last General Election gave an undertaking that if Fianna Fáil were returned to power this by-law would be reintroduced?
I am not so aware.
Well, I am informing the House so now.
We would not all like to be reminded of the undertakings we gave one way or another.
I am reminding the Minister of one they did give.
There were a few undertakings the Deputy gave as Minister that he did not carry out.
