That would have to be decided at European level. As I indicated to the House, I will be undertaking a review of energy security and sustainability.

All the advice I have received from experts is that having access to LNG is an important supplement to our security of supply and that we should have that.

As Deputy Brassil pointed out, there can be fracked gas in any gas resource. There are limits on our ability to dictate what other countries do in regard to the supply-----
