Proceeds of Sale of Aer Lingus: Motion
That Seanad Éireann approves the payment by the Minister for Finance, pursuant to section 46(1) of the National Treasury Management Agency (Amendment) Act 2014, from the Central Fund to the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund of €335,272,562.50 (three-hundred and thirty-five million, two-hundred and seventy-two thousand, five-hundred and sixty-two euro and fifty cent) being the amount of the funds derived from the proceeds of the sale of the State's shareholding in Aer Lingus.
It is the responsibility of the Leas-Chathaoirleach to keep silence and I want a process to get this registered. It is an absolute disgrace. It is as though the Ministers are afraid to face this House after cheating the Aer Lingus workers out of their pensions.
