Shell to Sea complains about letter

Corrib gas protesters have been told by Minister for Energy Eamon Ryan that there was no intention to interfere in the planning process with a letter sent by a Department of Energy official to An Bord Pleanála.

The letter was criticised by by representatives of Shell to Sea, who met Mr Ryan at Government buildings.

On November 2nd last the planning board determined almost half the proposed route for the project was “unacceptable”.

A spokesman for Mr Ryan said the official’s letter was a restatement in writing of testimony given at An Bord Pleanála’s oral hearing.
