Ceisteanna (284)

Pearse Doherty


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.
