Mr. Connaughton Mr. Connaughton
194. Mr. Connaughton asked the Minister for Transport if it is intended to have a test centre for light and heavy commercial vehicles situated in the Athenry area, County Galway; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15833/04]
Dr. McDaid Dr. McDaid
Dr. McDaid:The appointment of authorised testers for vehicle testing is a function of city and county councils in accordance with the European Communities (Vehicle Testing) Regulations 1991 to 2002. In relation to the Athenry area, it would be a matter for Galway County Council. My Department has no involvement in such appointments other than setting out the general regulatory framework for the operation of commercial vehicle testing.
