37. Mr. Broughan asked the Minister for Public Enterprise if she has sanctioned an increase in fares for Dublin Bus and DART services. [4569/99]

Minister for Public Enterprise (Mrs. O'Rourke): I have received an application for fares increases in respect of Dublin Bus and DART services. I propose to bring proposals to Government shortly in relation to a fares increase and a public service contract for Dublin Bus. I will consider a fares increase for Iarnród Éireann in the light of progress on its restructuring negotiations.
