Deputy Noel Dempsey: Bus Eireann has continued to pursue decentralisation to Mitchelstown. However, to date no employee has indicated a wish to move.
 My Department recently attended a meeting with the Decentralisation Implementation Group (DIG) on the 15th April, 2008 and representatives from each of the agencies under the Department’s aegis, including Bus Eireann, were present. Discussions took place on how best to progress their decentralisation programmes. Options are currently being explored regarding the nature of the posts to decentralise.
