Written Answers. - Aviation/Marine Communication Service Report.

42.

asked the Minister for Tourism and Transport whether he has received a copy of the Booz Allen and Hamilton report on the aviation and marine communication service; the recommendations which this report has made regarding the operation in Dublin of this service; and whether any transfers of staff from the Dublin operation which are indicated, will be on the basis of the voluntary agreement.

I have received the Booz Allen and Hamilton report mentioned by the Deputy. The report is an economic study in relation to the future role and work of the aviation and marine communication service in my Department.

The report is still under consideration and no decisions have yet been made in regard to the implementation of any aspects of the recommendations made by the consultants.
