Use of Irish Airspace and Landing Facilities: (Resumed) Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport
As I understand it, there were 13 applications to transport munitions through Irish airspace refused in 2013 by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport. I cannot state this categorically but it is my clear understanding. I am open to correction. Was there a reason for the 13 refusals? Is it in the Minister’s capacity to answer that?
