I propose to take Questions Nos. 364 to 367, inclusive, together.
Prison committal records are not maintained in such a way as to provide offence-related information categorised by individual statutes. However, I can inform the Deputy that the numbers of persons currently in prison following conviction on sexual offences and public order-type offences are 270 and 166 respectively. The number of persons currently serving a sentence in respect of a non-fatal offence against the person is 1,140. It is not possible to readily identify the total number of committals to prison in respect of fraud and theft offences.
Corresponding statistics, insofar as they are available, in respect of certain dates in the earlier years referred to in the Questions are contained in annual reports of the Irish Prison Service for those years, copies of which are available in the Oireachtas library.
