Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

I have noted the recommendations made by CORI with regard to the budget for 2005 and transport. While a number of the recommendations form part of current policy, others will be considered in the context of future policies and investment programmes being undertaken by my Department over the coming years. Under Sustaining Progress, there is in existence a public transport partnership forum on which the social partners are represented and which makes recommendations and offers advice on various aspects of transport policy. CORI is represented on the community and voluntary pillar of the forum.
