A number of independent TDs have issued a joint call for Natural Resources Minister Noel Dempsey to resign over his handling of the Corrib gas pipeline situation.

The five TDs have accused Mr Dempsey of interfering in mediation talks between Shell and local residents who are opposed to the pipeline project.

Mayo TD Jerry Cowley claimed today that the minister was meddling in the situation despite promising that the mediation process would be independent.

"The minister has unilaterally interfered with and changed the mediation process to include anyone who had any views to contribute," he said.

"This clearly was against what had been agreed and has rendered mediation impractical and amounting to little more than a process of investigating diverse views."
