I refer the Deputy to Question No. 209 of the 8th March 2012 in which I set out details of the Chairpersons whom I have appointed and of their appearances before the Joint Oireachtas Committee. Since that date I have made five further appointments of Chairpersons to various port companies. These appointments are of a temporary nature and expire at the end of September. The purpose of these temporary appointments is to allow their long-term replacements as chairpersons to appear before the Joint Oireachtas Committee prior to their appointment. Full detailsof State Board appointments are available on my Department's website at http://www.dttas.ie/StateBoardMembership.aspx.
