Ceisteanna (636)

Marc MacSharry


636. Deputy Marc MacSharry asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the Dublin Port Company has engaged a firm (details supplied) to issue threats of legal proceedings against a media outlet that wished to cover details of credit card spending of public money by executives at Dublin Port; his views on whether such action is warranted; his further views on the way in which it serves the public interest; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Dublin Port Company is an independent commercial state company and receives no Exchequer funding . Any legal actions or proceedings taken by Dublin Port are solely a matter for the company and it would be inappropriate for me to make any comment in this regard.

Question No. 637 answered with Question No. 85.
