Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Appointment Process for Chair of Irish Aviation Authority: Engagement with Department of Transport
What is our function then? I have been a Deputy for the past year. This is the third occasion on which I have seen someone appointed to a State board that has a functionality in the committee's remit. If this comes back in two three weeks' time and for some unknown reason we say we are not happy, what happens then? Could Mr. Towey explain that to me? Maybe I have missed something major over the last 12 months but this is a little out of sync with what I have seen happen with other appointments.
