Joint Oireachtas Committee on Disability Matters
Personal Transport for People with Disabilities: Office of the Ombudsman
Mr. Peter Tyndall:
I will let Ms Cooney speak about the details of the current position. On each occasion I have raised it, I was told reviews were under way and that proposals would be brought forward. It reached the point where proposals were ready to be brought to Cabinet and then they were withdrawn at the last minute. At that point I determined to produce this report because it was clear to me it was not a temporary halt. It was at that point the issue was effectively off the table. Now I believe further work may be under way and perhaps Ms Cooney will say something about this.
