  Mr. Roche: I propose to take Questions Nos. 112 and 168 together.

I refer to the reply to Question No. 602 of 13 February 2007.

A review of the National Climate Change Strategy was published in July 2006. Following a public consultation on this review, I am preparing a revised National Climate Change Strategy which will take account, inter alia, of commitments in Budget 2007, the National Development Plan 2007-2013 and actions for the energy sector which will be announced shortly in a white paper to be published by my colleague, the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.
