Written answers (Question to Transport)

As Minister for Transport, I am responsible for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. However, I am not involved in day-to-day operational matters.

This is an operational matter and responsibility for the qualifying criteria of employment rests with Bus Éireann. Accordingly, I have referred 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.
