Vol. 420 No. 4

Written Answers. - Natural Gas Supply.

Mervyn Taylor


116 Mr. Taylor asked the Minister for Energy if he will make a statement regarding the supply of natural gas to the applicants for this at Seskin View Road, Tallaght, Dublin 24; if having regard to the fact that (a) the supply exists in this area already, (b) deposits were paid and there will be increasing subscribers over time, he will ensure with Bord Gáis Éireann, that the supply is made available to these applicants as a matter of urgency.

Bord Gáis Éireann (BGE) has a statutory obligation to develop and maintain a system for the supply of natural gas on a commercial basis. Accordingly, decisions relating to connection of individual streets or areas are a matter for Bord Gáis Éireann and are assessed by the board in the light of that obligation. I have no function in regard to such decisions.
