Written answers (Question to Education)

The information requested by the Deputy, concerning state board appointments, for the timeline sought by the Deputy is being collated, and I will arrange to have it forwarded to the Deputy as soon as it becomes available.

As the Deputy will be aware, individuals may be nominated for appointment to State Boards of bodies under the aegis of my Department by various organisations arising from the terms in the relevant legislation regarding the Body concerned and accordingly board appointments, made by me, are not in all cases made at my discretion.
