Written answers (Question to Transport)

As the Deputy may be aware, Shanon Airport Authority has statutory responsibility to operate, manage and develop Shannon Airport. Shannon Airport Authority is a subsidiary of Shannon Group which is a commercial State Body.

Accordingly, the matter raised by the Deputy is an operational matter for the Company. I have therefore forwarded your request to Shannon Group for a direct response. If a response is not received within 10 days, please contact my private office.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 51
