Niall Collins

The Deputy’s question would appear to relate to my role as a public representative rather than to the fulfilment of my duties as Minister for Rural and Community Development.  As a public representative, I am asked by constituents to make representations on their behalf to a range of public bodies in respect of a range of matters.  I am not in a position to review or confirm the nature of all of the correspondence or queries handled by my constituency office in that regard.
