Ceisteanna (284)

Pearse Doherty

Ceist:

284. Deputy Pearse Doherty asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport his views on whether it is acceptable for the National Transport Authority to repeatedly refuse to confirm a meeting with a cross-party delegation of public representatives from the Inishowen peninsula, County Donegal, to discuss their concerns regarding the changes to the public bus services from Inishowen to Letterkenny; and if he will encourage the NTA to do so at the earliest opportunity.
