Brendan Howlin

Ceist:

31 Mr. Howlin asked the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources his proposed agenda for the planned June meeting with the Ministers from the Executive in Northern Ireland. [17401/01]

The next meeting of the North-South Ministerial Council in the Foyle, Carlingford and Irish Lights format will take place on 22 June 2001. A draft agenda is being finalised by officials North and South at present and will be submitted for formal approval by the respective administrations before the meeting of the council.

I will advise the Deputy of the agenda as soon as it is finalised and agreed.
