Assembly Written Question 16206/17-22
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, with regards to the proposed Islandmagee Caverns Gas Storage Project, for an update on whether he plans to bring the marine construction licence to the Executive Committee for consideration as it is a cross-cutting matter.
Answer: I expect to be presented with a portfolio of documents within the near future to assist me in determining the application for a marine construction licence for the Islandmagee Gas Storage project. I have been advised that the briefing will include advice on whether this is a cross cutting issue and on the need for Executive referral. I trust you can appreciate that I am keeping an open mind on the matter and unable comment further until I have had sight of the documents.
