The Minister was asked "if his Department has had communication" with the Port of Cork Company, but never answered that question at all.

He went on to claim that the Department of Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE) and Gas Networks Ireland (GNI) already supported the project.

However, the Taoiseach, on April 28th, wrote:
“Both of our parties accept that as we move towards carbon neutrality, it does not make sense to build new large-scale fossil fuel infrastructure such as liquid natural gas import terminals.
While additional security of gas supply could be beneficial, we have secure supply at present from the Corrib Gas Field and the United Kingdom."

Why would his department, then state that this is "commercial operational matter for the Port of Cork Company" when your department actually OWNS the Port of Cork and Government policy is against LNG terminals.
