Written answers (Question to Transport)

As the Deputy is aware, under the July Stimulus Plan, I announced the introduction before the end of the year of a number of new bus services in addition to enhancement and improvement of a number of existing services.

The National Transport Authority (NTA), in conjunction with the relevant transport operators, is tasked with the introduction and enhancement of these services and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 51
