Re: Irish 7/19

Is it not time the assets of the DAA (specifically the runways, taxi-ways and operational buildings - control tower) reverted to direct government ownership, managed by the DAA? This would alter the revenue requirements and debt shedules of the DAA! Which would allow for a realistic view of charges.
