In terms of granting a MAC and the conditions that go with it, does the Bill allow for conditions to be attached around rehabilitation in terms of any works that could take place or any damage that has been done to the marine environment? If one is seeking a MAC in an area where damage has already been done to the marine environment, would there be a condition on the MAC that in order to look for licences or permissions in the area, rehabilitation work must be done? Is the Minister of State saying that it could not be done as part of the MAC process but at the licensing or permission stage?
