Written answers (Question to Minister for Transport)

I have been briefed by the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) in relation to the escalation of anti-social behaviour on trams and at Luas lines. The safety and security of passengers including arrangements to deal with anti–social behaviour is a matter for the transport operator in conjunction, as appropriate, with the Garda.
