Vol. 470 No. 1

Written Answers. - Mayo Sewerage Scheme.

Séamus Hughes


184 Mr. Hughes asked the Minister for the Environment when he will make a decision on the public inquiry held several months ago in relation to Westport sewerage scheme, County Mayo, particularly having regard to the pollution taking place in inner Clew Bay and in view of the fact that the period to draw down cohesion funding could be exceeded in allowing for the detailed planning and development of the scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [18241/96]

I will give a decision on this matter as soon as possible. As my role in determining the matter is of a quasi-judicial nature, it would not be appropriate to comment on any aspects of the scheme at this stage.
