I propose to take Questions Nos. 216 and 217 together.

As Minister for Transport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding for public transport.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for securing the provision of public passenger transport services nationally. The NTA also has national responsibility for integrated local and rural transport, including management of the Rural Transport Programme, which operates under the TFI Local Link brand.

In light of the NTA's responsibilities in this matter, I have referred your question to the NTA for a direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.

Question No. 217 answered with Question No. 216.
