We are told on page 15 of the general scheme about the gender identity of the chair of the board. It will be "The Chairman of the Board of Irish Water". That is not acceptable. I appreciate mistakes can be made, but I would like a commitment that the Bill will use gender-inclusive language. If that cannot be given, fair enough, but that is what I seek.
