Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
71. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the reason the Sligo rail freight yard is to let when the strategic rail review of the network has yet to be finalised; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26704/21]
As the Minister for Transport, 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.
The issue raised is an operational matter for Iarnród Éireann and I have forwarded the Deputy's question to the company for direct reply.
Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
