Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications (Mr. Lowry) Michael Lowry
Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications (Mr. Lowry): I have no statutory function with regard to the  standardisation of TV reception equipment. Moreover, even if such a requirement were to be introduced by the EU as a broadcasting policy measure, I would have no statutory function with regard to its transposition into Irish law.
