Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action

Supporting a Just Transition: Discussion (Resumed)

Mr. Kieran Mulvey:

I consider them to be extremely wide-ranging. An enormous amount of work must be undertaken within a short period, but it is important to get things right. It is only as I work through this that I shall realise whether additional resources are needed either fiscally or in personnel terms. I have been very impressed with the services Offaly County Council have already given to me and by the availability of staff in the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment. I caution that if this work is to be done, it will require more feet on the ground, so to speak.
