Translation of Correspondence with Dept of Comm., Marine and Natural Resources by Maigh Eo Monday, Aug 1 2005, 10:42pm
Here is a translation of the posting in Irish above''It took 6 e-mails over 4 days to get these answers from the department.Question 1: Who are the people who are in the new group which is monitoring Shell?Answer 1: We will reply to you as soon as possible.Question 2: Did any member of the PAD (Petroleum Affairs Division) accept a meal that was paid for by Shell, and if so, how often?Answer 2: Yes, certain members of PAD were present at several work lunches paid for by Shell, similar to the ones with...the Environment Monitoring Group''(just a translation, I don't know what this group is actually called)''Question 3: Did any members of PAD travel abroad with Shell and if so, how often?Answer 3.1: Two members of PAD participated in a trip to Aberdeen to observe the seismic details in the 3D visonarium . PAD paid for all costs.Answer 3.2: One member of PAD took part in a field trip in Nova Scotia - PAD paid for the travel and accommodation expenses.Answer 3.3: One member of staff travelled to the Netherlands - PAD paid for all travel and accommodation expenses.Question 4: Did any member of PAD attend any social events organised by Shell and if so, how often?Answer 4: PAD has no information in regard to this.''Fair play to Éamonn. I suppose the best way to get information is to ask a direct question! I'm not surprised at the answers you got, but it's important to get people to acknowledge the way that they've been courted by this multinational and to think about how their positions and their authority and credibility have been compromised. Maith thú. Caithfidh mé fhéin cúpla ceist a chur ar chúpla duine anois....
