It is estimated that approximately 114,000 secondary and college-going students will be affected if the dispute spreads to the school transport network. That should bring into stark focus for the Government the seriousness of this issue and demonstrates that action needs to be taken by the Government. Where do the Tánaiste and the Government stand on this issue? Does the Government have a strategy to ensure the public transport network will not let down those who cannot afford private transportation during this impasse? Does the Government intend to intervene between management and staff to try to avoid a strike in the first instance?
