I propose to take Questions Nos. 107 and 146 together.

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport in Ireland.

The issue raised is a matter for Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ) and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to CIÉ for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
