Written answers (Question to Transport)

Coastal reclamation is a matter for the relevant local authorities and as Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have no function in relation to this matter.  I am not aware of any reports undertaken to examine change in coastal reclamation requirements or to examine silt deposits in the Boyne River inlet.
