Written answers (Question to Environment)

On 23 April 2014, I published the General Scheme of the Climate Action and Low-Carbon Development Bill.

The General Scheme has been referred to the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel and the Bill will be published as soon as drafting has been completed. My objective is to introduce the Bill and progress its passage through the Oireachtas as quickly as possible.
