asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries the value of all fish, demersal and pelagic, and salmon, grilse and shellfish landed at each port in County Donegal for the year ended 31st December, 1969.

As the reply is in the form of a tabular statement, I propose with your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, to have it circulated with the Official Report.
