Written Answers. - Directives to RTE.

285.

asked the Minister for Posts and Telegraphs the number of occasions on which directives have been given to RTE since 1962 either by the Government acting collectively or by individual Ministers in the form of (a) a written communication and (b) a telephone communication.

On the assumption that the Deputy's question relates to programme matters, the answer is "one". That direction was given by me in writing.
