Written answers (Question to Transport)

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has responsibility for regulating fares charged by public transport operators. I have therefore forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. I would ask the Deputy to advise my private office if he does not receive a response within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
