Minister for Transport Mr Noel Dempsey TD and Minister for State Mr Noel Ahern TD today met with a delegation from the Irish Road Haulage Association.

He agreed to immediately engage with the relevant enforcement authorities with regard to the increased enforcement of road transport and road safety legislation as well as the unlawful use of green diesel.
