I propose to take Questions Nos. 305 to 307, inclusive, together.

As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport, including active travel. The National Transport Authority (NTA) allocates the funding at a project level.

Noting the NTA's responsibility in the matter, I have therefore referred the Deputy's questions to the Authority for a more detailed reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within 10 days.
