Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: I propose to take Questions Nos. 17 and 18 together.
I have made it clear that the Garda authorities have informed me that any person with specific evidence that Shannon Airport or any other Irish airport is being used for any alleged unlawful purpose should share this information with the Garda Síochána, which would have responsibility for investigating such matters.
 Such an investigation, which would be an operational matter for the Garda Síocána, could include, where appropriate, the inspection of an aircraft, subject to relevant international law.
