The proposed cap on the exemption for communities selling turf cannot and will not work according to a former Rural Development minister.

Last month, the Green Party leader Eamon Ryan floated the idea that communities with up to 500 people may be exempt from any ban on gifting or selling turf to neighbours or friends.

The new measures are to take effect on the 1st of September as the Minister for the Environment plans to ban the sale of smoky fuel

Fine Gael's Michael Ring said he's hoping to bring in proposals that will help the situation.
