547. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if his officials will visit Inishmurray Island with engineers from Sligo County Council to ascertain the work that needs to be carried out to provide a safe landing facility at the island; if he will liaise with the Marine Survey Office regarding the works required; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Officials in my Department are happy to engage with Sligo County Council in relation to safe landing requirements and compliance with the Merchant Shipping Acts. Obviously, such engagement does not prejudice the role of Marine Survey Office as the maritime transport regulator in ensuring that all relevant safety requirements have been met.
