Road Traffic and Transport Bill 2006: Committee and Remaining Stages
Martin Cullen (Minister, Department of Transport; Waterford, Fianna Fail)
The Senator has identified my intention that this issue should be fitted into a road traffic Bill or some other Bill after the consultation I referred to has taken place. I am glad to tease these matters out with the local groups but I do not believe there are any contentious issues in this regard. My intention is simply to frame this measure in such a way that we can be sure we do it right. The challenge is to ensure we frame something that can be applied nationally rather than only to one specific area. The same principles arise on all occasions. It is my intention to include this provision in legislation if I can get agreement to do so.
