The Minister stated there was difficulty in communications with Bus Éireann. I have to say there is ongoing difficulty in communications with Bus Éireann. My colleagues to whom I have spoken in the past few weeks are absolutely, totally, frustrated with the communications of Bus Éireann. I know the Minister addressed email problems earlier but I ask that her officials, when they are in contact with Bus Éireann, ask that it improves its communications with Oireachtas Members because we are a conduit between a great number of parents, families and Bus Éireann. Much could be solved if they communicated with the Members of the Oireachtas. It is unfair of me to take up other members' time. I will call on members who have emailed me first of all.
