Ulick Burke

Question:

143 Mr. U. Burke asked the Minister for Education and Science if he will provide school transport for persons (details supplied) to a national school in County Galway in view of the fact that they are seriously underprivileged and can be accommodated within the existing service without additional expenditure but necessitating a small rearrangement of the bus route. [8268/98]

I can confirm that a request for a rerouting of the service in question was recently received by my Department. A detailed report has been sought from Bus Éireann, and the Deputy will be informed directly of the outcome.
