Joint Committee on Transport and Communications
This Committee has a very broad remit over policy areas which impinge on the lives of citizens in every corner of the country. In shadowing the work of the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport, the Committee considers general policy matters relating to the functions of those two Departments and EU policy priorities in those areas.
