Waterways Ireland

Volume 684: debated on Wednesday 12 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

At what level the director of marketing and communications was designated and transferred from the Civil Service to Waterways Ireland in March 2002; and what is his current salary.[HL6607]

The current salary of the director of marketing and communications at Waterways Ireland is £50,571.35 per year.

It would be inappropriate for me to comment on his previous employment in the Irish Civil Service.

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether Waterways Ireland will be included in the discussions and negotiations on restoring devolution to Northern Ireland due to take place over the coming months.[HL6608]

The Government will do all they can to facilitate discussions and negotiations between the Northern Ireland political parties in the lead-up to the 24 November deadline. It is primarily a matter for the parties to determine which issues need to be included in these discussions. To date, none has suggested that Waterways Ireland be included.
