Written answers (Question to Finance)

The Climate Action Plan was agreed by Government last month.   The Plan is not prescriptive on the question of parking for civil and public servants.  However, I note that it has a multi-annual focus and that it envisages the development and implementation “of planning rules and guidelines across residential and non-residential parking locations for EV charging infrastructure.  

I am of the view that policy in relation to the matter raised by the Deputy should evolve taking account of the general thrust of the Climate Action Plan.
