Dáil Éireann Debate
1066. Deputy Maureen O’Sullivan asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the number of State agencies currently financed by the Exchequer; the number of board members attending each State agency; the expenses issued for each meeting; if any review of the membership of board members is to be taken in order to monitor attendance levels or lack of attendance by any member; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2056/12]
Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport (Deputy Leo Varadkar): My Department provides current expenditure funding for twelve agencies. The number of Board members for each agency together with details of directors’ remuneration, including expenses, is set out in the Agency Annual Report. Details of Board membership are also available on my Department’s website.
The management of directors and their attendance is a matter for the Board Chairperson. However, I would expect the Chairperson to bring it to my attention if there were a problem with the attendance record of any director.
