Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
National Transport Authority
133. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the reason he has failed to commence a competition to fill the post set aside for persons with disabilities within the National Transport Authority; and when the recruitment process will commence. [27826/21]
There are currently three vacancies on the Board of the National Transport Authority (NTA). My Department has commenced the recruitment process and is actively engaging with the Public Appointments Service (PAS) with regard to filling the current vacancies on the Board, including one with experience in the area of disability and accessible public transport. It is hoped that the PAS competition to fill these vacancies will commence shortly.
