I am in Leinster House.

Mr. Towey has not given us a definitive answer as to how long the appointment will be for, which is disappointing. My remarks do not in any way cast aspersion on the appointee. Given the background of the chairperson designate and her involvement with Shannon Airport, does Mr. Towey believe she has a conflict of interest given that this is a national authority, serving all airports?
