Marc MacSharry

Ceist:

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.
