Question to the Taoiseach on Green Policies

I had the opportuntiy to ask the Taoiseach about his thoughts on emmulating some of the successful Green policies implemented in other countries and if he had discussed environmental policy during a recent conversation with President Macron of France.

While I was asking about positive measures that he could implement, he defended theemission heavy livestock sector, suggested paying EU emissions fines with increased carbon taxes and committed to Ireland's ongoing use and exploration of oil and gas.
