[929] Deputy Fergus O’Dowd asked the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources if he will cite any and all examples whereby decisions made have been overturned or amended under section 22 of the Interpretation Act 2005; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17853/07]

  Deputy Eamon Ryan: Having consulted with Divisions in the Department, I can advise the Deputy that there is no instance where decisions made have been overturned or amended under section 22 of the Interpretation Act 2005.

In the inland Fisheries area, bye-laws, aimed at the effective management, protection and improvement of inland fisheries may from time to time be revoked or amended under the 2005 Act.

Section 22 facilitates the making of adjustments to existing by-laws and the introduction of additional by-laws necessary for the protection and conservation of the inland fisheries resource on an ongoing basis.
