Written answers (Question to Communications)

Matters relating to electricity network outages are an operational issue for ESB Networks and the Board and management of ESB and are not ones in which I, as Minister, have any statutory function. I have, however, asked ESB to contact the Deputy directly in relation to the issues raised.
