As the Deputy will be aware, there is a process to be completed in order to select appointees to the Boards of State Agencies in an open and transparent manner.

I understand that the Public Appointments Service will shortly be advertising for applicants for the vacant positions on the Board of the Road Safety Authority. The advertisement will need to allow time for applications, following which there will be an interview process. I understand that this can take 6 to 8 weeks.
