Deputy Brian Lenihan Deputy Brian Lenihan
Deputy Brian Lenihan: A number of different statutory processes are involved in appointments to State boards and bodies under the aegis of my Department. In some cases statutory selection procedures must be followed or nominations must be sought from independent nominating panels before appointments are made by the Government or by the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. In other cases only particular public office holders may be appointed to certain boards and bodies. In a number of situations, only some appointments to the body or board concerned are made by the Minister.
The information requested in relation to the state boards and bodies under the aegis of my Department is set out in the following tables:
