Potential evacuation plans for Irish citizens in Lebanon

This week I asked the Minister for Defence about whether there are contingency plans in place for any potential evacuation of Irish citizens from Lebanon should there be an escalation in hostilities there.
In addition, some months ago the Minister signed a €68 million contract for a new military transport aircraft, which is being built in Spain. It was initially expected to be delivered to Baldonnel in 12 months. I asked him to provide an update on its scheduled arrival.
