Tourism (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 5 – Appointment of chairman of Northern Ireland Tourist Board

Schedule 1 to the Tourism Order provides that the Board of NITB shall consist of not more than 9 members and that the chairman of the Board shall be appointed by the Minister from among the Board members. This precludes the direct appointment of the chairman via external open competition. This Section amends Schedule 1 to the Tourism Order so that the Minister is no longer required to appoint the chairman from among the Board members.
