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 which are matters for the individual operators, in conjunction with the National Transport Authority (NTA) as appropriate.

As the issues raised in this case come under the remit of Irish Rail, I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the Company for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days
