Minister for the Marine (Mr. Andrews): The planned major development of Kilmore Quay, which involves dredging of the harbour and improvement of the landing facilities, is expected to cost in the region of £2 million. Design work is at a preliminary stage and discussions are continuing with local fishing interests. Subject to the design work progressing satisfactorily, and all necessary sanctions being finalised, it is intended to commence physical works in the latter part of this year. The funding of this project is currently under review.
