An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Following the Taoiseach's announcement yesterday concerning measures to meet our climate change targets, I bring to his attention the fact that engines known as Euro 4 and Euro 5 can still be imported into this country. This is despite the fact that they emit approximately double the amount of CO2that more modern engines emit.
I ask that the Taoiseach examine bringing in an immediate ban on Euro 4 and Euro 5 engines as they are contrary to all good practice with regard to climate change.
