Sinn Féin to push motion on oil and gas reserves at Council meetings throughout the State – Adams

19 April, 2011 - by Gerry Adams TD


Speaking after a meeting of his party’s elected representatives in Leinster House today Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams announced that his party will bring forward a motion on the licensing term for Ireland’s gas and oil reserves at Council meetings throughout the State next month if it is not adopted in the Dáil this evening.

Mr Adams said:

“Sinn Féin wants to see as wide a debate as possible on the potential of Ireland’s oil and gas reserves. We believe that this potential is being wasted and our Dáil motion to be debated this evening seeks to address this.

“Having met with our team of elected reps here in Leinster House today we have agreed that this motion will be put forward at Council meetings throughout the State next month if it is not adopted by the Dáil this evening.”
