Mr. N. Dempsey Mr. N. Dempsey
Mr. N. Dempsey: Gas and electricity tariffs are the statutory responsibility of the Commission for Energy Regulation, under the Electricity Regulation Act, 1999 and the Gas (Interim) (Regulation) Act, 2002. I have therefore no statutory function in relation to these issues.
The Regulator is on record as confirming an openness to review tariffs in light of definitive international trends.
