asked the Taoiseach if he will give details of the actual imports of Russian vodka into Ireland to date, together with such details as are available of further consignments, including the value of the said consignments.

Imports of vodka are not separately enumerated. An examination of the relevant import documents from 1st January, 1963 to date has shown that there were no imports of vodka from Russia during that period. No information is available regarding possible future importations.

Under which heading does vodka come?

Possibly under spirits.

You differentiate between whiskey, brandy and gin. Why do you not differentiate in regard to vodka also?

The question relates specifically to vodka.
