Written Answers. - Garda Questioning of Journalist.

Liz O'Donnell

Question:

210 Ms O'Donnell asked the Minister for Justice the reason a journalist (details supplied) was questioned by the Gardaí in relation to a story in respect of budget arithmetic; the number of such investigations ongoing into journalists sources; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [1882/96]

I have requested a report in this matter from the Garda authorities and will write to the Deputy when it is to hand.
