Senator Daly calls for a moratorium on the appointments to State boards, because of government cronyism

I ask the Deputy Leader to organise a debate on appointments to State boards. At the same time, she might call for a moratorium on such appointments. Of the 1,300 appointments made by the Government, only 28% of the positions were filled after being publicly advertised, despite the Government’s continued promises in the run-up to the general election that there would be openness and transparency. The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Leo Varadkar, called for a moratorium in 2010, but there is a deafening silence from him now as he watches his fellow Cabinet members breaking their own promise of transparency in appointments to State boards.
