Written answers (Question to Environment)

The Mahon Tribunal currently retains copyright in all of its transcripts. The copyright in the transcripts for days 1 to 326 was originally retained by Doyle Court Reporters but was subsequently purchased by the Tribunal. The transcripts are presently available on the Tribunals website: (www.planningtribunal.ie).
