Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine
Climate Action Plan and its Implications for the Agriculture Sector: Discussion (Resumed)
For the record, Mr. Lumley commented on his perception that nobody who has questioned the logic of importing horticultural peat has raised objections in the past to the export of horticultural peat from Ireland. That is not, in fact, the case. I am on the record of both this committee and in the House as questioning the logic of exporting large amounts of Irish horticultural peat at a time when there is a shortage in indigenous sectors.
