HL Deb 10 February 2005 vol 669 c125WA
Lord Laird

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Why it was necessary to check the legal position of the appointment of the former Northern Ireland Tourist Board Chairman to Tourism Ireland, as reported in the minutes of a meeting of the North/ South and British/Irish Council issues on 14 November 2002. [HL677]

The Lord President of the Council (Baroness Amos)

It was necessary to check whether the expiration of the term of office of the then chairman of the Northern Ireland Tourist Board automatically terminated his holding office as a director of Tourism Ireland Limited or if he was required to formally resign from that post.
