Written Answers. - Waste Recycling.

66. Mr. Stagg asked the Minister for Public Enterprise if her attention has been drawn to a [1030] project between Bord na Móna and Iarnród Éireann for a recycling plant in cut away bogs in the midlands; if she has given approval for the project; and, if so, if she will give details of the project.

Minister for Public Enterprise (Mrs. O'Rourke): Bord na Móna is a commercial company with significant land resources. It frequently receives proposals from various business and interest groups. In the area of waste disposal, I am aware that a concept is being developed involving both Bord na Móna and Iarnród Éireann but so far no proposal has been put to me.
