Amendments put forward at Committee, Report and Final Stages of the Petroleum (Exploration and Extraction) Safety (Amendment) Bill 2015

As Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Communications, Energy, and Natural Resources, I put forward amendments at the Commitee, Report and Final Stages of the Petroleum (Exploration and Extraction) Safety (Amendment) Bill 2015 in relation to whether there has been a regulatory impact assessment carried out and raised the need for a bonds system to be put in place to pay for the possibility of the decommissioning of oil and gas platforms should a company cease operations in Ireland. I am disappointed that the Government didn’t put forward these proposals.
