I second the Fianna Fáil motion put forward by Senator Leyden. I welcome the Minister to the House. If I could go off-message for just a moment, I commend him for the support that he and the Taoiseach are giving to a hugely important project in my area of north Kerry, namely, the Shannon LNG project, which now has the backing of a new developer, New Fortress Energy. I thank the Minister for his continued involvement in that project. Once the final hurdle is cleared in October, I ask him to continue to monitor it and take a hands-on approach and to keep the public representatives informed as much as possible on a non-party basis. It is not a party-political issue.

Of Course, it must be pointed out that New Fortress Energy will be exporting fracked gas from the US and the Fracking ban made illegal the importation of fracked gas into Ireland and is internal waters. I wonder is the Dáil and Seanad allowed to encourage an illegal act????
