[1581]Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources (Mr. Fahey): Information on Frank Fahey Zoom on Frank Fahey The primary purpose of the Merchant Shipping (Investigation of Marine Casualties) Act, 2000, is to provide for a new legislative and procedural regime to regulate the entire area of marine casualty investigation in Ireland which will replace the system established in 1894. A key provision of the Act is the establishment of an independent marine casualty investigation board with enhanced powers to investigate marine casualties and to publish reports within a specified timetable. I hope to be in a position to establish the board shortly.

Question No. 58 answered with Question No. 53.
