Ceisteanna (128)

Patrick Costello

Ceist:

128. Deputy Patrick Costello asked the Minister for Transport if the use of trains (details supplied) for intercity services will cease given the inadequate luggage space available which makes such journeys unattractive and thus sees a decrease in the use of public transport and a correlating effect in terms of meeting climate change targets. [53241/21]

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

As the issue raised is an operational matter for Iarnród Éireann, I have 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 51
