Post Office Closures: Motion
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.
