(Speaker Continuing)

[Deputy Alan Kelly: Information on Alan Kelly Zoom on Alan Kelly] There needs to be improvement in the commercial angle of CIE and how the individual three subsidiary companies commercially exploit their services. I have worked very closely indeed with CIE and its subsidiaries, even up until recently, to ensure that in 2013 there will be considerable changes and focus from the companies to ensure they commercially exploit their excellent facilities and services. Deputies should note, for instance, that Irish Rail has new offerings on its services across the country where those who book early get a concession. It is this kind of thing we need to promote in order to ensure more people use public transport.

Acting Chairman (Deputy Peter Mathews): Information on Peter Mathews Zoom on Peter Mathews I thank the Deputies for their questions, to the Ministers of State for their replies and to the staff for assisting us in the debate here this evening. I wish the Members a happy Christmas and a happy new year.

  Written answers follow Adjournment.
