Board of the Equality Authority

The Minister for Justice & Equality, Alan Shatter, told Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin (SF, Cavan – Monaghan) that there would be new procedures for appointments to boards of state bodies, such as the Equality Authority (Dail Eireann, Debates, 23rd June 2011, 610).  Departments would now invite expressions of interest on their websites for vacancies on their boards.  Ministers would not be confined to this list, but must ensure that all appointees had relevant qualifications.
