Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Reorganisation of Creamery Industry.
Mr. T. O'Donnell Mr. T. O'Donnell
12. Mr. T. O'Donnell asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries what progress, if any, has been made in the past twelve months towards the reorganisation and rationalisation of the creamery industry.
Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries (Mr. Blaney) Neil T. Blaney
Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries (Mr. Blaney): Following the publication early in 1966 by the Irish Agricultural Organisation Society of a plan which illustrated a possible form of reorganisation of the dairying industry, the society discussed its plan at regional meetings held by it with co-operative creameries. I understand that  while some proposed groupings of creameries in the plan did not meet with general approval at the regional meetings the idea of re-organisation was, on the whole, well received. It appears that more recently opinion among creameries may be growing more favourable to re-organisation of the industry and I am at present considering how, in the light of developments, the aim of a completely reorganised industry may best be achieved.
