Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate
Today's announcement will affect approximately 155 staff in Shannon specifically, and will have far-reaching implications for approximately another 55,000 jobs in the region.
The enormity of the situation calls for intervention.
I have specific questions and if the Minister does not respond now I ask him to respond in writing. Can he give us clarity today on the review of Shannon Group? He said the airports would be well positioned. Can he elaborate on that? Can he commit here and now that he will do all in his power to ensure that Shannon Airport is saved?
