Mr. Clinton: Information on Mark A. Clinton Zoom on Mark A. Clinton asked the Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries the method by which imports of pollard are regulated.

Mr. B. Lenihan: Information on Patrick J. Lenihan Zoom on Patrick J. Lenihan Imports of pollard are controlled by way of licences issued by me under the Agricultural Produce (Cereals) Acts. There is at present no quantitative restriction on such imports.

Mr. Clinton: Information on Mark A. Clinton Zoom on Mark A.
