Fifth Report of the Joint Committee on Climate Change and Energy Security: Motion
Simon Coveney (Cork South Central, Fine Gael)
That comment from the Minister of State makes it all the more disappointing that he has not taken on board what the Opposition parties are now saying. In many cases the Opposition parties have learned from many of the arguments made by the Green Party five or six years ago and they now accept this should be mainstream opinion. Now that the Greens are in Government, they believe that only a Government party has the capacity to bring a Bill forward and this is disappointing.
