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

I propose to take Questions Nos. 705 to 710, inclusive, together.

The table shows the total number of robberies of cash-goods in transit and robbery of an establishment/institution in respect of offences against licensed premises, banks and post offices for the years 2002, June to December, 2003 and 2004.

There were no aggravated burglary offences recorded for these types of premises in the specified years. I am informed by the Garda that providing the other information in the format requested would require a disproportionate amount of Garda time and resources to compile it.
