Written Answers. - Public Transport.

  161. Mr. Kehoe asked the Minister for Transport if he remains committed to the break up of CIE into three separate companies, as set out in the programme for Government 2002; when legislation will be published to advance this proposal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [27033/04]

  Mr. Cullen:The Government is committed to reform of public transport. A considerable amount of work on the detailed technical aspects of the restructuring of CIE has taken place in my Department and this work is ongoing. I am reviewing this work, as well as consulting with stakeholders. When I have completed that review and my consultations with key stakeholders I will consider how to proceed generally and in relation to legislation.
