Snippet Contents:

Flooding on the River Shannon has caused hardship for families and businesses and prevented infrastructure from operating for many months. I know of homes in Roscommon in the Minister's constituency which are still flooded. The impact is still being felt on the Shannon Callows, in Meelick and Portumna. The ESB should be allowed to lower the level of the River Shannon in September each year. This preventative measure would not affect people in Parteen or elsewhere and would alleviate the current crisis until the works being done by the Office of Public Works are completed and the recommendations of the CFRAM study implemented. It would also have significant benefits from an energy point of view and in terms of local authority manpower and the use of the emergency services. Furthermore, people would no longer worry about the possibility of waking up at night with 12 in. of water in their homes.
This is a good Bill. Any measure that supports consumers, for whom we advocate, and helps them to reduce costs is good. I wish the Minister well.
