Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
As Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, I have responsibility for policy and overall funding in relation to public transport. However, I am not involved in the day-to-day operations of public transport nor decisions on the disposal of CIÉ property, which are subject to the provisions of the Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies.
The issue raised is a matter for Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ), in conjunction with Iarnród Éireann. I have forwarded the Deputy's question to CIÉ for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
