On a point of clarification, is the Minister happy to stand over a situation where somebody from Bus Éireann management locked the drivers out of their bus depot in Clonmel on Saturday last at 1 a.m. after the buses were parked there? Is he content to allow that to happen?
Is the Minister also aware that 12 senior managers in Bus Éireann are getting over €100,000 a year and 11 more managers are getting just under €100,000?
Is the Minister content to allow a situation from this Saturday, which I note is April Fool’s Day, where there will be no Bus Éireann services anymore serving Clonmel, thereby throwing the bus drivers on the scrap heap?

We do not have time. Under Standing Orders, I must start the select committee meeting at 3.15 p.m. Perhaps the Minister could respond to the members in writing as soon as he can. I must adjourn the meeting now.
