Select Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Tourism Development Authority (Amendment) Bill 2015.
Apologies have been received from Deputy Peter Fitzpatrick. This meeting has been convened for the purpose of considering the National Tourism Development Authority (Amendment) Bill 2015, as referred to the committee by Oder of the Dáil on 5 July 2016. I welcome the Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy O'Donovan, and his officials to the meeting. Before we begin, I remind members to ensure their mobile phones are switched off completely, as distinct from putting them on airplane mode, as they cause interference with the broadcasting service.
