Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice and Equality)

I can inform the Deputy that my Department has no plans to re-establish the National Crime Council. I should also mention that the White Paper on Crime process, which is underway at the moment, has involved consultation with a wide range of interests about best practice on crime prevention.
