[2056/12]

Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport (Deputy Leo Varadkar): Information on Leo Varadkar  Zoom on 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.
