I propose to take Questions Nos. 253 to 262, inclusive, together.

The Deputy has requested various details in respect of dairy trade between Ireland and Britain/Northern Ireland, across a range of product categories, for the year 2017 to date. The CSO, this week on Tuesday 16th May, released provisional trade data for the period January to March 2017 inclusive. This is set out in the attached table.

For cheese, a percentage estimate is included in respect of cheddar as a proportion of the total cheese category. It should be noted that the data as compiled is based on CSO preliminary estimates which will be subject to periodic revision based on updated trade statistics.
