I propose to take Questions Nos. 492 to 494, inclusive, together.

Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) is a commercial state body responsible for the overall administration, promotion and development of the horse racing industry.

The questions raised by the Deputy are an operational matter for HRI.

In line with Dail procedures this request can be made directly to HRI using the dedicated email address: oireachtas@hri.ie. The Deputy's questions have been passed on by my Department via this mechanism.
