Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

The Department of Transport is committed to transferring all appropriate records of 30 years or over to the National Archives. However, it has not been possible to review records since the Department was established in June 2002. I assure the Deputy that the Department will shortly undertake a review of these records and I will inform the Deputy of the outcome.
