Financial Resolutions 2022 - Financial Resolution No. 1: Mineral Oil Tax (27 Sep 2022)

Richard Boyd Barrett: I want the Minister to answer. I am sorry, but that is not a good enough explanation. It really is not.

We have heard the Minister, other Government Ministers and European Ministers, one after the other, getting up and saying that this is the moment...
