450. Mr. M. Ahern asked the Minister for Fisheries and Forestry the volume of forestry trimmings exported to Sweden over the last five years; if he will give a breakdown for each year; and the amount of revenue that accrued over the five years with a breakdown for each year.
Minister for Fisheries and Forestry (Mr. O'Toole) Paddy O'Toole
Minister for Fisheries and Forestry (Mr. O'Toole): Statistics on the lines requested are not compiled by my Department. However, the attached table sets out, for recent years, some relevant information, abstracted from Central Statistics Office publications, which I trust will be of interest to the Deputy. I should add that, due to lack of sufficient domestic outlets in recent times, the export of pulpwood size material was accepted as a temporary measure in the interests of maintaining harvesting expertise in the forests and promoting employment in timber harvesting and haulage.
