Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters
I appreciate that the Minister of State was reading from a pre-prepared reply, but that would be fine if we were representing the southside of Dublin and we would be glad to know about the improvement of the DART line, which is not what we asked about. We asked about improvements to the Rosslare rail line and clearly what has been provided by the Department of Transport and Irish Rail once again shows they do not understand the question we are asking. I know for a fact that of the 41 intercity railcar carriages that the Minister of State mentioned, not one of them is going to serve the Rosslare rail line, unless he can correct me on that. On the basis of the response we have received, it is clear there is no interest on the part of the Department of Transport or the Minister in the Rosslare rail line.
