Irish Aviation Authority Bill, 1993: Committee Stage.

I support Senator Howard's amendment calling on the Minister to locate the headquarters of the Authority at Shannon Airport. I listened with interest to Senator Magner's comments about objective crit...More Button

One wonders if he is equating modernisation with centralisation.More Button

I cannot accept Senator Magner's argument against incorporating Senator Howard's amendment in the Bill. It is important that it is incorporated and my colleague made a strong case for doing so. Ther...More Button

Stop talking rubbish.More Button

They may, but they will vote as the Fine Gael Members in the Dáil voted.More Button

It is unfortunate that Government speakers have interpreted the motivation behind Senator Howard's amendment as an attempt to politically embarrass them. If they could see this amendment as genuine t...More Button

As I said earlier, Ministers' statements are not worth the paper they are written on as far as the people in the mid-west region are concerned. We have concrete proof of that and I can provide Senator...More Button

This amendment is interesting. By tabling this amendment, Senator Quinn has raised the question of the difference between State and semi-State sectors. The question must be asked: would it not be be...More Button

That is another question, there are three strands.More Button

There are subsidiaries; it is important that we take notice of that.More Button

Will jobs be lost because of that?More Button

The lads in Ballygirren asked me to ask if jobs will be lost as a result of this.More Button

It is a matter between the Minister and the lads in Ballygirreen.More Button

I agree with Senator Ross in relation to this section. I raised this matter on Second Stage. Three years is a very long time before a report is made specifically to the Minister in relation to safet...More Button

I agree with what the Minister of State said regarding what ANSO has been doing. We complimented them on Second Stage on their fine work and their high international standards. However, 20 years fr...More Button
