I propose to take Questions Nos. 309 and 310 together.
I would like to thank the Deputies for their questions in relation to a request for a meeting from Shannon Chamber in connection with a report the Chamber, in collaboration with the Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) and supported by Ennis, Limerick and Galway Chambers, has prepared, on Regional Air Access Recovery and Growth.
My Ministerial colleague, Minister of State Hildegarde Naughton, has agreed to meet with Shannon Chamber on this matter, and her office will be in touch to make the necessary arrangements.
