Written answers (Question to Environment)

I have no function in relation to the development of the horticultural sector nor the sourcing of peat for that sector. The report of the Working Group on the use of Peat Moss in the Horticultural Industry was commissioned by Minister of State Malcolm Noonan, T.D., and I have no function in relation to its approval or publication.
