Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.


10:30 am

Jerry Cowley (Mayo, Independent)

I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 31 to discuss a matter of national importance, namely, the need for the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Deputy Noel Dempsey, to clarify his position on the proposal made by a small unrepresentative group in Erris to row back on his order to Shell to dismantle the illegally welded section of the onshore Corrib gas pipeline, given that it has already taken the company 79 days to comply with the order and the need to explain the reason he is giving credence to the Shell proposal by agreeing to meet representatives of the company on this matter later today and has not already acted to defend the integrity of his order.
