Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
1021. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the details of requests made by the European Commission on compliance with the fourth railway package; the response provided to such requests; the actions he is of the view are necessary in order to fully comply with the transposition of EU Directive 2016/2370 into national law; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6425/20]
The European Commission initiated Infringement proceedings in 2019 for the non-transposition of Directive (EU) 2016/2370 into national legislation within the timeframe of 25 December 2018.
An approach to delivering the transposition of this Directive into Irish law has since been agreed with the Commission and work is continuing in my Department to ensure that this matter is finalised as soon as possible.
