Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Food and the Marine

Aquaculture Industry: Discussion

I cannot comment on that because it was probably before my time. On the habitats and birds directives, I do not think we were consulted as to how they would be implemented. Similar to designated land it was more or less a case of "You are in an SAC, now and this is what you need to do, and this needs to be appropriately assessed".
