Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
In the programme for Government a commitment was made that within the first three months an application would be made by the Government to the EU for the western arc to be included in TEN-T funding. The commitment has not been honoured by the Government. I do not know where the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport has gone but he does not seem to realise that with Brexit going on it is now more important than ever for counties along the west coast, from Donegal down, to be included in core TEN-T funding. Will the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade take an interest in the matter and get it delivered, in conjunction with the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport because he does not seem to have an interest in it?
