Select Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Estimates for Public Services 2021
Vote 29 - Environment, Climate and Communications (Revised)
Vote 31 - Transport (Revised)
On the appointment of a chair of the board of Shannon Group, the Minister engaged with this committee a few weeks ago and said that he wanted to engage with Oireachtas Members in the region. I am also chairperson of the Shannon Airport Oireachtas group, which the Minister has agreed to meet. Will the Minister of State raise that matter with him and ask him to set up that appointment with the group and to have that engagement? He has agreed to do it. Will the Minister of State give a commitment today to ensure that happens? It is very important. It is a key appointment. We need to engage with the Minister on it.
