Martin Ferris (Kerry North-West Limerick, Sinn Fein)
I still cannot understand why a person with the Minister's authority cannot convene a meeting of all the stakeholders around the table which is the only way he will resolve this issue. Making submissions is a delaying tactic that will push out the boat all the time. It is within the Minister's remit to convene such a meeting. If it happened, it would clear the muddy waters and people would be clearer. Will he pull the stakeholders together and initiate a meeting between the CER, the Department and Shannon LNG to resolve the issue?
