Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Potato Genetic Bank.
Mr. Lemass Mr. Lemass
20. Mr. Lemass asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries if Ireland has any interest in participating in the genetic bank for potatoes, Braunschweig-Volkenrode, which is being set up by the Federal Republic of Germany, the Netherlands and perhaps countries in South America.
Mr. Clinton Mr. Clinton
Mr. Clinton: I will have inquiries made by my Department in regard to this particular genetic bank but I can say that a proposal a few years ago that OECD should set up one was not proceeded with due to lack of support from member countries.
