Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 110, 147, 155, 162 and 177 together.

These questions relate to a payment to a board member at Dún Laoghaire Harbour Company.

As I stated previously on 5 February, the payment of expenses to directors is a matter for the Company in accordance with the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies. I understand that the matter is subject to legal proceedings by the Company and in such circumstances I am not in a position to comment further at the moment.
