I propose to take Questions Nos. 1473 and 1474 together.
The consultation/assessment process for both Projects NSAD-17-003 (Erriff Bank Protection) and Project SCF-17-0005 (Carrowniskey) included the following elements
- A screening for Appropriate Assessment for the proposed works;
- the submission of screening to the National Parks and Wildlife Service; and,
- consultation with the land owners and receipt of their consent to the works.
In view of the number of questions tabled recently by the Deputy in relation to fisheries projects, I have offered him a briefing with Inland Fisheries Ireland. I reiterate that offer.
