Question:

154 Mr. E. O'Keeffe asked the Minister for Justice the further consideration, if any, that has been given to filling the vacant position of sergeant at a Garda station (details supplied) in County Cork. [8504/96]

The Garda authorities are responsible for the detailed allocation of Garda personnel and resources to individual areas.

They have informed me that the filling of this vacancy will be considered, in conjunction with similar vacancies throughout the recently established Cork north Garda division.
