Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
150. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport when the report from the public consultation on proposed small public service vehicle (contingency measure – vehicle supply) (maximum permissible age) regulations will be released; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [57247/22]
As the Deputy may be aware, the regulation of the small public service vehicle (SPSV) industry, including vehicle age limits for SPSVs, is a matter for the independent transport regulator, the National Transport Authority (NTA), under the provisions of the Taxi Regulation Acts 2013 and 2016. I have no role in the day-to-day operations of the SPSV industry.
Accordingly, I have referred your question to the NTA for direct reply to you. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within 10 working days.
