Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

I have to respect the fact that the Garda Síochána Bill will be debated next week in the Seanad and it would be inappropriate if in this House were to pre-empt its discussions on any aspect of the Bill.

I do not wish, therefore, to start going into details on items which are more appropriate to the Second Stage or Committee Stage debate on the Bill.
