Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport.  However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport. 

The issue raised is an operational matter for Iarnród Éireann and I have therefore forwarded your question to the company for direct reply.
