Members of RTE board must be able to tender

BREDA Heffernan's report on RTE (Irish Independent, July 18) implies a ready-up between RTE and board members who are involved as presenters or in TV production companies.

If board members in RTE or any other semi-state companies are to be excluded from doing business with the semi-state with which they are associated, then such boards will become composed entirely of retirees and no-hopers.

Of course the tendering process should be at arm's length from the board -- but to exclude tenders from board members would not only be unjust but extremely bad business.
