187. Ms Shortall asked the Minister for Transport, further to Questions Nos. 813 and 814 of 28 September 2005, the specific point to point route covered by the ten Dublin Bus notifications in his reply which came under the categories, returned premature, application withdrawn by company, deferred prior application and section 25 application. [27240/05]
Mr. Cullen Mr. Cullen
Mr. Cullen: In accordance with standard procedures for processing notifications of proposed service changes by Dublin Bus, details of the notifications remain confidential until the Department has given a decision so as to protect the commercial interests of the operator.
In the case of decisions on applications under the categories, returned premature, section 25 applications and withdrawn by the company, my Department would not make details of such proposed operations for any bus operator available as this information would be considered to be commercially sensitive.
In the case of the application in 2004 for a new service under the category “deferred prior application”, until such time as the prior application on hand and the subsequent consideration of the Dublin Bus proposal is finalised, and in accordance with standard practice, I am not in a position to provide the details requested by the Deputy.
