The information requested by the Deputy is contained in the following table.

The appointments made by me include worker directors to the boards of State agencies under the aegis of my Department, where this is required in section 15 of the Worker Participation (State Enterprises) Act 1977, and chief executives of such agencies where legislation specifies that they become,ex officio, a director of the company.

Appointments to the Board of the Irish Aviation Authority are made by my colleague, the Minister of State, Deputy McDaid, under the powers conferred on him by S.I. No. 402 of 2002; Transport (Delegation of Ministerial Functions) Order 2002, for example, the IAA.

In other cases my appointments are made on the nomination of outside bodies, for example, the DTO and the Advisory Council to the Commission for Taxi Regulation.
