Finance Bill, 1980: Second Stage (Resumed).

Has the Minister concluded?More Button

Will the Minister state if it is the intention to resume the planning cycle of a Green Paper in the summer and a White Paper in the winter which the previous Minister for Economic Planning and Develo...More Button

In other words, the Government do not know what they are going to do.More Button

Is the Minister telling the House that we are to have this sequence of Green Paper-White Paper, Green Paper-White Paper which the Government announced would be the rule?More Button

A decision had been made about this. Has that decision been rescinded? Is economic planning in the air. (Interruptions)More Button

There is another box in the court besides the witness box.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Howth-Bray Line Electrification.

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Limerick Gasworks.

I see the Minister's point about the relation between the acute situation in Limerick and the somewhat longer term possibilities which natural gas offers, but I am not too clear about why the Minister...More Button

Why is it necessary to take 12 or 18 months for the Government to decide whether to build this pipeline?More Button

I see the Minister's point, but would he agree that it places a terrible national responsibility on a private company in regard to what is a very important national energy decision and that this priva...More Button
