Press Conference on the public consultation to the JOC regarding the prohibition of fracking bill.

Hildegarde Naughton, the Chair of Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action, received a petition from anti-fracking groups, signed by over 7000 members of the public, calling for Bill to be passed without delay.
