190. Mr. O'Donoghue asked the Minister for the Marine, in view of the substantial investment in and development of Dingle Harbour, County Kerry, in recent years, if he will designate the harbour as a major fishery centre; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5337/95]
Minister for the Marine (Mr. Coveney) Minister for the Marine (Mr. Coveney)
Minister for the Marine (Mr. Coveney): The Harbours Bill, 1995, preparation of which is well advanced, contains an enabling provision which empowers the Minister for the Marine to designate Dingle harbour as a fishery harbour centre when the new legislation is in place.
However, the general question of the management of fishery harbours falls for review in the context of a major review, announced by me on 1 March 1995, of the organisation and management structure of the fishery services including the fishery harbour centres. I will be assessing future management plans for Dingle harbour and other major harbours in the light of the outcome of that review which it is intended to have completed by mid-year.
