Written answers (Question to Transport)

My Department has now carried out a major review of ports policy. The new policy is designed to provide a coherent framework for all state owned ports and allow for their future development in a manner that suits their individual circumstances.

The policy will be considered by the Government in March and it will be published following Government approval as soon as possible after that.

Consequently, the period for submissions is now closed.
