The Workers’ Party recently made a submission to the consultation on the Private Wires document. The document (which can be found by clicking here,) published by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications, is an apologia for business and banking interests who, for their own interests, want to see Ireland’s electricity transmission and distribution network privatised. The Workers’ Party is totally opposed to the proposals contained in the Private Wires document for the privatisation of all, or any part, of extra electricity transmission or distribution networks to be constructed in this country.
