Department of Housing, Planning, and Local Government
203. To ask the Minister for Housing, Planning, and Local Government the status of the establishment of a citizens’ assembly on biodiversity; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [49913/21]
The convening of a Citizens' Assembly on Biodiversity is under discussion at a senior level between the Department of the Taoiseach and my Department. The timing and scheduling of the Assembly will depend on the outcome of these discussions and on a number of external factors which need to be considered before the scope and terms of the Assembly are framed.
