Snippet Contents:

I have no idea. I trust my Department to put these newsletters together. It is my job to be the political face of Irish agriculture and I have no intention of shying away from that. It is my job to encourage, inspire and lead people in an ambitious new direction in terms of building an industry. That is working and it is working on the back of a plan that, to be fair, the previous Government prepared, namely, Food Harvest 2020, which we have built on and are implementing. It is nonsense to suggest I should shy away from that because it is somehow perceived as party political. I spend most weeks travelling the country talking farmers and encouraging them, and introducing new policy to help build the industry. We will continue to do that and I will continue to do that as long as I am in this position.
Part of any newsletter will give coverage to what we are doing. If the Deputy dismisses that as party politics, that is fine, but I do not see it as party politics. I see it as me doing my job as Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine. Similarly, it is the job of the Minister of State, Deputy Tom Hayes, to represent and advocate for the sectors for which he is responsible. If we can do it at no additional cost to the Department and make it interesting to the many farmers who want to get this newsletter, that is a positive thing.
