Grangegorman Development Agency Bill 2004: Report Stage (Resumed).
Jan O'Sullivan (Limerick East, Labour)
I accept the Minister's amendment No. 90 addresses the issue raised in my amendment No. 62. I acknowledge the Minister has travelled quite a distance to address our concerns but, ultimately, the various organisations in the area will still only have one representative on the agency. Will the Minister consider increasing the number, as has been sought by every Member who has contributed? One representative is insufficient considering the variety of organisations and the number of active residents' associations in the area. Will the Minister re-examine this issue and consider providing for at least a second representative of the various interests in the area?
