Minister for Tourism and Trade (Mr. E. Kenny): I propose to take Questions Nos. 29 and 61 together. An Bord Tráchtála will be organising a trade mission to Israel in conjunction with the EU-sponsored Partenariat which will be held in Jerusalem next October. An Bord Tráchtála is working closely with its trade consultant in Tel Aviv to ensure that participating Irish companies make the best use of the Partenariat and that they also get an opportunity to look at business possibilities in Israel and the Palestinian territories.
