  Mr. Cullen:Iarnród Éireann recently submitted to my Department a strategy document that sets out the business case for the development of a greater Dublin integrated rail network over the medium term.

The Department is in discussion with Iarnród Éireann on the detail of the strategy document and the company is to present further information in that regard.
