Grangegorman Development Agency Bill 2004: Report Stage (Resumed).
Mary Hanafin (Minister, Department of Education and Science; Dún Laoghaire, Fianna Fail)
The flexibility to do so exists but, for the purposes of specifying who the members are, the proportion is correct and I have every confidence in the groups that will be involved. I do not believe that the developmental groups, networks and partnerships that constantly tell people how to do their work should be the people who should continue to tell them how to do it. It should be left to the resident, who is a voter in the area and is elected by the people in the area, to do the work.
