This amendment will ensure no orders for potential de-designation of bogs may be made until the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government has issued regulations on peat cutting and small-scale peat extraction. These regulations would be crucial in ensuring the maintenance of bogs following their de-designation. I urge the Minister of State to accept this amendment.
