Written answers (Question to Transport)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 274 and 275 together.

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

The issues raised are a matter for the National Transport Authority (NTA) and I have, therefore, referred the Deputy's questions to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
