Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh (Atógáil) - Questions on Promised Legislation (Resumed)
On my behalf and on that of the Minister of State, Deputy Kevin "Boxer" Moran, we have been told that job losses are because of a 2013 alteration to the ESB licence for the Lanesboro power station. We did not see any solutions brought forward by the company for five full years until 2018. This now threatens over 300 jobs. I ask that the Minister, Deputy Bruton, haul the three organisation involved, the ESB, Bord na Móna and the EPA, into his office this afternoon and that he would come to the Dáil this evening and provide us with a proper plan for how we will protect these jobs in the midlands.
