Written Answers. - Prisoner Transfers.

Mary Harney

Question:

163 Miss Harney asked the Minister for Justice if she has received an application for a transfer to a training unit from a prisoner (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [8717/96]

I can confirm that I have received a number of transfer applications from the prisoner referred to by the Deputy including an application for a transfer to the training unit.

It is not normal practice to comment in detail on individual cases and I do not propose therefore to depart from this practice in this particular case.
