Asked the minister: the current situation at TEAM Aer Lingus.More Button

I congratulate the Minister on his appointment and wish him a happy and fruitful, but not necessarily long term of office. I am concerned about his comments in regard to TEAM Aer Lingus. Is he aware...More Button

I do not understand the Minister's reply. The last accounts were published in March 1993 and, therefore, the next accounts should have been published in March 1994. I understand the board decided n...More Button

Does the Minister accept it?More Button

May I ask——More Button

I am sure most people will be surprised to learn that Telecom Éireann can find £1 billion internally over the next five years. Has this anything to do with the fact that Telecom Éireann's charges are...More Button

I was suggesting that perhaps the Minister would not sanction the £1 billion investment until Telecom Éireann agrees to reduce its rates but that is a matter for the Minister and I will pursue it anot...More Button

Everybody else in the country seems to know what I am talking about; I am referring to the mobile network, the talks that are taking place with AT&T, Cable and Wireless and nine or ten other groups th...More Button

So householders can relax?More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Assistance for Small Business.

As a former businessman, I am sure the Minister does not believe that answer. Yesterday a firm of accountants suggested that semi-State companies should pay their bills on time and the taskforce on s...More Button

I am talking about small companies. Is the Minister aware that the previous Government had a proposal to introduce legislation to ensure that the public service would pay its bills within the due dat...More Button

Asked the minister: his views on a figure of up to £500 million being the amount needed by Iarnród Éireann to ensure safety standards over the next five years; and if he will make a statement on the matter.More Button

While not wanting to alarm the public — which would not be proper — about our rail services——More Button

Harcourt Street will arise later. Is the Minister aware that there are 1,500 miles of track nationwide, of which 50 per cent is in excess of 50 years old? Independent studies have shown that a sum o...More Button
