What is Ruairí Quinn Looking for?


I was going through the question paper for the Dáil Ruaire Quinn has tabled the following question for written answer:

*47. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Finance the appointments to State boards, bodies or committees made since 3 July 2007 to date in 2008; the names of the persons so appointed; the dates on which the names of those persons were published in Iris Oifigiúil; the State boards, bodies or committees on which vacancies currently exist; the number of vacancies in each case; the State boards, bodies or committees in which vacancies are anticipated to arise up to and including 1 October 2008; and the number of vacancies in each case. — Ruairı´ Quinn. [12529/08]

He asked that question to the following Ministers:
* Tánaiste and Minister for Finance
* Minister for Health and Children
* Minister for Transport
* Minister for Foreign Affairs
* Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment
* Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism
* Minister for Social and Family Affairs
* Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs
* Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food
* Minister for Education and Science
* Minister for Defence
* Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform
* Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government

Is he on to something the rest of us dont know about? Its a strange one? Any one any ideas?
