Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism
Question 19: To ask the Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism if he has had any meetings with the new director designate of the Abbey Theatre to discuss the future of the national theatre; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5322/05]
I wish to avail of this opportunity to offer my congratulations to my Department's arts adviser on his recent appointment as director designate of the Abbey Theatre. I will be happy to meet him in that capacity to discuss the future of the national theatre when he takes up his appointment. However, he will not do so for some months.
