Minister for Finance (Deputy Michael Noonan): I propose to take Questions Nos. 95 to 98, inclusive, together.

 
 
I assume the Deputy is referring to the excise receipts to the Exchequer, and the associated volumes, from excises on alcohol. I am advised by the Revenue Commissioners that as excise receipts on alcohol are not distinguished between alcohol subsequently sold in licensed pubs and sold in off-licences there is no statistical basis on which the figures requested by the Deputy can be compiled.
