 11. Miss Quill Information on Máirín Quill Zoom on Máirín Quill  asked the Minister for Enterprise and Employment Information on Richard Bruton Zoom on Richard Bruton  when the Task Force report on Cobh, County Cork will be published; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [4478/96]

[726]Minister for Enterprise and Employment (Mr. R. Bruton): Information on Richard Bruton Zoom on Richard Bruton As I outlined to the house last October, I have received the report and recommendations of the Cobh and Harbour Area Response Group, which was set up to propose measures that would offset the economic and employment effects on the area affected by the restructuring of Irish Steel announced in July 1994.

The recommendations contained in this report were not recommendations that could be carried through solely by my Department. To this effect I consulted the Minister for Finance, the Minister for the Environment, the Minister for Defence and the Marine and the Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications on these recommendations and on their possible implementation. I have received responses from the relevant Government Departments, which are still being considered by my officials. I expect to make an announcement in the near future about the matter.
