Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Leo Varadkar (Dublin West, Fine Gael)
I know this is an important issue in Drogheda, Ireland's largest town, for those living there and its business community. The matter has been raised several times in the House, including by my colleague, Deputy O'Dowd. A decision on funding is yet to be made and is a matter for the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Deputy Darragh O'Brien, in respect of the LIHAF and the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Eamon Ryan, and the Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Deputy Naughton, in respect of roads funding. I cannot tell the Deputy whether that decision has been made or when it will be, but I will let them know that she has raised the issue again and tell them of her strong support for it.
