Brid Smith TD: HELL-BENT ON PUTTING WILD-LIFE AT RISK. WHY?
This was my second time to address the proposed Bill by Heather Humphries FG, which would extend the time for burning off heather and gorse in the countryside. It carries enormous risk to our natural heritage, our tourist potential and crucially to our wild-life. So are they just pandering to the big ranchers, or what? Nothing justifies this.
