Ceisteanna (1173)

Paul Kehoe


1173. Deputy Paul Kehoe asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if the recent letter issued to a group (details supplied) refusing it a position on the CAP consultative committee has since been superseded by the update by the assistant secretary of his Department to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine on 27 May 2021 that there is still a decision to be made on the request; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

On 24th May 2021, a response issued to the organisation named relating to their request to be offered a position on the CAP Consultative Committee. The response said that the Department did not, currently, see a need to broaden membership of the Consultative Committee at this late stage of the process..

Further representations have since been made to the Department and I am now considering these.

As work continues to develop Ireland’s CAP Strategic Plan, Department officials will continue to engage closely on forestry related issues to ensure appropriate integration between the National Forestry Programme and the next CAP. This will include direct engagement with the organisation named.
