Minister for Agriculture and Food (Mr. Walsh): My predecessor was aware of the financial hardship being faced by many farmers in paying their Land Commission  annuities and he set up a Working Party to consider the problem and to propose an effective solution to it. I have since received their report and my Department is in contact with the Department of Finance with a view to finding a solution to the problem. As soon as specific proposals are agreed, I will make a full statement on the matter.
