Grangegorman Development Agency Bill 2004: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage.
Mary Hanafin (Minister, Department of Education and Science; Dún Laoghaire, Fianna Fail)
I agree with the Deputy's intention but the appropriate mechanism is for the Minister for Finance to make an order under freedom of information legislation, which would extend the regime to the agency. I will arrange this with the Minister at the appropriate time.
