Written answers (Question to Environment)

I refer to the reply to Question No. 374 of 11 March 2014. I can confirm that the status of the legally executed foreshore windfarm leases at Arklow and Codling Banks remains unchanged following the recent announcement by the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources on the Inter-Governmental Agreement.
