I propose to take Questions Nos. 602 and 604 together.

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport.

The issues raised by the Deputy are operational matters for Irish Rail and I have forwarded your questions to the company for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
