Information on parliamentary scrutiny

This proposal was considered at the meeting of the Joint Committee on Environment, Transport, Culture and the Gaeltacht on 13th March 2012. It was agreed that this the Proposal does not warrant further scrutiny. The Committee has, however, decided to write to the Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and state: • it supports Ireland’s fundamental commitment to the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and the preservation of water quality; • it supports the Department’s intention to formally notify the relevant Government Departments (Departments of Agriculture, Communications and Natural Resources; Health and Children and Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation) about the proposal and thereby ensure Departments work together in an integrated way; and to ask • to be kept informed of all developments regarding this Proposal.
