Written Answers. - Regional Research Structure.

[1874] 171. Mr. Yates asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry the proposals, if any, he has to change the regional research structure of Teagasc to give it greater national co-ordination.

Minister for Agriculture, Food and Forestry (Mr. J. Walsh): Any re-organisation of the structure of Teagasc is, in the first instance, a matter for the body itself. Recently the authority approved an efficiency plan which is designed to make the body financially viable in the long term while providing the most relevant services in a cost effective manner.
