John Lahart: I appreciate it. Are we surprised that passenger numbers are less than they were before Covid-19 when we have bus services as poor as that?

All four routes that brought to the Minister of State's attention...

Sporting organisations play...

John Lahart: I know the Deputy from Dún Laoghaire will be interested in parts of this. It is disappointing not to have a Minister from the line Department present.

I know the Minister of State will bring back the content and...

Anne Rabbitte: After what I am about to read, the Deputy will certainly have a few more comments to make.

The Deputy will be aware that there have been many incidents of failures and...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Departmental Schemes (22 Sep 2022)

Eoin Ó Broin: I thank the Minister of State for telling me what the report published two and a half months ago said. There were ten paragraphs in his speech.
