 136. Mr. Ring Information on Michael Ring Zoom on Michael Ring  asked the Minister for Education Information on Niamh Bhreathnach Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach  if she will have arrangements made to change the pick-up point for a school bus (details supplied) in County Mayo in view of the fact that it will not cause any inconvenience to her Department or to Bus Éireann and will improve matters for the students involved. [9030/96]

Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): Information on Niamh Bhreathnach Zoom on Niamh Bhreathnach The students referred to by the Deputy who are offering for transport on this service are entitled to catchment boundary transport only, from the existing pick-up point. They avail of school transport subject to there being spare accommodation available, and provided that no additional State cost is incurred. It is a matter for the students to make their own arrangements to get to the catchment boundary pick-up point in order to avail of this service.

Accordingly, I do not propose to alter the present arrangements.
