New Minister must bring forward Forestry Bill
Labour Party Agriculture and the Marine spokesperson Seán Sherlock has congratulated the new Minister for Agriculture and the Marine, Charlie McConalogue TD, on his appointment to the Cabinet.
Deputy Sherlock said:
“I congratulate Minister McConalogue and wish him well in his brief. It is crucial, now more than ever, that confidence is restored for all stakeholders in agriculture. The past number of months has been an unstable time for the sector.“
“As a first action the Minister must bring the Forestry Bill before the Dail immediately. We need to provide clarity for those in the Forestry sector, particularly in respect of felling licences and also to provide clarity in respect of the appeals process.”
