The General Scheme of the Airport Noise Regulation Bill 2018 was presented to and discussed in session with the Joint Oireachtas Committee early in October, in accordance with Pre-Legislative Scrutiny arrangements. My officials along with officials from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government and the Office of the Attorney General have been working intensively to prepare the Airport Noise Regulation Bill 2018. The formal Bill is close to being finalised. I expect to present the Bill to the House this month and I look forward to the support of Deputies when it is presented.

The JOC meeting on 3rd Oct only discussed the ANR Bill 2018 for 1 hour and 5 minutes . It was postponed to the following week but wasn't taken up since as far as I can see from minutes of subsequent meetings ! . Hardly enough for a issue of this importance
