Statement by Brendan Smith TD, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food

I want to acknowledge the very significant contribution that Trevor Sargent has made since his appointment as Minister of State for Food and Horticulture in 2007, both to the work of the Department generally and the organic and horticulture sectors in particular.

Trevor has, at all times, displayed great energy and commitment to his role as Minister of State and was widely respected by the many stakeholders with whom he worked closely.

Trevor was an excellent and hardworking colleague in the Department and I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work closely with him in highlighting the value of the Irish agrifood sector.   I want to thank him very sincerely for his assistance and commitment and I wish him every personal and professional success in the future.
