Charging Waterways Ireland for water

Nice PQ from Éamon Ó Cuív here:

Éamon Ó Cuív (Galway West, Fianna Fail). Question 446: To ask the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government if Waterways Ireland will have to pay for the abstraction of water for use in the Royal Canal, the Grand Canal, the Shannon-Erne Waterway and other man-made waterways as a result of the reasoned opinion from the European Union in November 2011; the reply sent by him regarding same to the Union; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8122/12]

Here is the European Commission’s press release on the subject.
