Written answers (Question to Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine)

I have appointed chairpersons to three State Bodies under the aegis of my Department since March 2011. The three State Bodies are:

An Bord Bia.

Bord Iascaigh Mhara.

Bord na gCon.

The Chairs appointed have yet to be called before the relevant Oireachtas committee but are aware of this requirement.
