Written Answers. - Garda Stations.

Síle de Valera

Question:

31 Miss de Valera asked the Minister for Justice her views on proposals that certain Garda stations in Dublin be closed periodically; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [9149/97]

The opening hours of individual Garda stations is a matter for the Garda authorities.

They have informed me that the Garda Commissioners has been examining the policing infrastructure for the Dublin metropolitian area and that a proposal will be sent to me in the very near future. I cannot comment further until such a proposal is received by me.
