Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals
Mr. Barry Lowry:
I thank the Chair for his question. At this moment in time I do not believe it will. However, it is far too early in the process to give a clear answer to that question. Obviously, in all discussions, we will try to create legislation and a technical solution which meets the interests of Ireland and the Irish people; that reflects our different views on privacy and data control, etc., to many of the other member states; and that makes sure that any solution that is chosen, as well as the legislation, reflects the will and the desires of our own people and how they would use this facility. At this moment in time I do not have concerns, but it is bit early to give a final answer on that.
