Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 228 and 229 together.

I understand that the slipway in question falls within the jurisdiction of Shannon Foynes Port Company. I have passed the Deputy's question to the Company for direct response. In the event of not receiving a response within ten working days, please contact my office again.
