Written answers (Question to Transport)

The Minister for Finance and the Minister for PER have set out the broad parameters for Budget 2021. However, Estimates discussions are still ongoing and I am not in a position to give any breakdown of 2021 expenditure at this time as it would pre-empt Government decisions on the final Estimates and Budgetary measures for 2021.
