Question:

99 Mr. Power asked the Minister for Justice the number of non-nationals who have been involved in fatal road accidents in this country in each year since 1992; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [3906/97]

I am informed by the Garda authorities that statistics regarding road traffic accidents are not compiled by them in such a way as to readily provide the details which the Deputy requests.

Statistics in relation to all road traffic accidents reported to the Garda authorities are forwarded directly by the Garda to the National Roads Authority. A detailed annual report on road accidents statistics entitled "Road Accident Facts" is prepared and published by that Authority.
