Brendan Smith


278. Deputy Brendan Smith asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if funding will be provided by the National Transport Authority towards the provision of a new bus service where Bus Éireann ceased operations and was in receipt of a subsidy (details supplied); if consideration will be given to this request of the coach operator, as an important service for a vast rural area is being provided by the operator and no other public transport is available in these areas; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
