Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Impact of Peat Shortages on the Horticultural Industry: Minister of State at the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage
There is huge frustration out there and people are worried about the economic viability of the sector. That is where the committee will be coming from. We want to get a satisfactory economic and environmental solution to this issue.
Many members are looking to speak and we have limited time so I will take speakers in groups of three. I will go back to the Minister of State after each group of speakers because otherwise I do not think I will be able to give everyone an opportunity.
