Dáil Eireann Debate
182. Deputy Pat Breen asked the Minister for Transport the appointments or nominations made by him to bodies, boards or organisation under the aegis of his Department since 1 January 2009 and to date in 2010; the method used in selecting persons for such appointments; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [10683/10]
Minister for Transport (Deputy Noel Dempsey): I refer the Deputy to my response to Question No. 251 of 3rd February 2010 in which I set out the appointments to State Boards under the aegis of the Department of Transport from 6th June 2002 to end 2009.
To date in 2010, the only appointments I have made are the appointment of Ms Laetitia Baker to the Board of Iarnród Eireann from 15 February 2010 for a period of 3 years and the re-appointment of Ms. Jacqueline Cross to the Board of the Railway Procurement Agency and her appointment to the Board of the National Roads Authority for a period of 3 years from 1 March 2010 in both cases.
Appointments to the boards of State bodies under the remit of my Department are made on the basis of appointees having the necessary skills, competencies and experience to contribute effectively to the work of the boards.
