15. Deputy David Cullinane asked the Taoiseach the tonnage of imports from Northern Ireland by rail by SITC revision 4 in each of the years 2006 to 2016, in tabular form. (Question 35585/17 asked on 26 Jul 2017)
Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach (Deputy Joe McHugh): I propose to take Questions Nos. 14 to 19, inclusive, together.
The full detail requested by the Deputy is not available. The data shown here is tonnage of goods transported to and from Northern Ireland from 2014 to 2016 based on Intrastat survey data on Intra-EU Trade in Goods.
It does not cover small traders who are below the threshold for completing the Intrastat survey.
