Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

I presented Ireland's Presidency programme for the transport sector to the Regional Policy, Transport and Tourism Committee of the European Parliament in Brussels on 21 January 2004. The full text of that address is available on my Department's website atwww.transport.ie.

In addition to the formal Presidency programme, I have made road safety a key transport theme of the Presidency. With that in mind I am holding an event in Dublin Castle on 6 April to sign the European Road Safety Charter.
