Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): The listing and processing of reclassification appeals is nearing completion and the appeals panel will shortly be reviewing each area under appeal to assess the situation. As the Deputy will appreciate, the appeals panel is an independent body and will itself decide on the necessity or otherwise for a further survey of the areas under appeal.
