Dáil Éireann Debate
Minister for Justice (Mr. Boland): The functions of the commissioner in this matter are confined to appointing stopping-places. He has no power to provide signs or to compel anybody else to provide them. That is a matter for the corporation or bus company.
Mr. Daly: The Minister may not be aware of the fact that several years ago the corporation decided to have these fixed stopping-places, and also decided to have signposts marking the stopping-places. The position in Cork City at the present moment is that there is not even an arrow to show the way to Dublin.
Mr. Boland: So far as the Guards are concerned, they have actually pointed out where the stopping-places are to be. The erection of the signposts is not a matter for the commissioner. He merely has to point out where the stopping-places are to be. The erection of the signposts is a matter for the local authority or the bus company.
