Ceist:

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I am responsible for policy and overall funding for public transport.  The maintenance of hedgerows along the rail network is an operational matter for Iarnród Éireann and is carried out by the company in accordance with its statutory remit.  

I have therefore forwarded 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.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
Questions Nos. 182 to 184, inclusive, answered with Question No. 54.
