[865] 177. Mr. Donnellan asked the Minister for Industry and Energy when the IDA will develop properly the industrial estate at Ennis Road, Gort, County Galway, and remove the unsightly fences etc.

Minister for Industry and Energy (Mr. Reynolds): I am informed by the Industrial Development Authority that five acres of the 5½ acre industrial estate have been sold over the years to a number of individual industrialists. These industrialists are responsible for the maintenance of their own sites.

A 7,000 sq. ft. advance factory is being built on the remaining half acre, under a private finance arrangement with the IDA. This factory and its surrounding area will be completed to a standard specified by the IDA. In addition, the access road to this factory, which is the responsibility of the IDA, will be completed to a high standard within the next few months.
