Written answers (Question to Culture)

Waterways Ireland has informed me that a formal application for the permission in question has not yet been received. However, Waterways Ireland has been liaising on this matter.  

Once a formal application is in hand  Waterways Ireland will be required to obtain approval from the North South Ministerial Council (NSMC).  Waterways Ireland has in the meantime provided a Draft Licence, which has been accepted, as an interim measure to facilitate a related transaction.
