Questions (380)

Patrick O'Donovan

Question:

380. Deputy Patrick O'Donovan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality if he will provide in tabular form by division and district, the number and type of Garda vehicles that were decommissioned by An Garda Síochána in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [11251/13]

Written answers (Question to Justice)

Decisions in relation to the provision and deployment of Garda transport are matters for the Garda Commissioner.

In that context, I have been informed by the Garda authorities that a breakdown of vehicles decommissioned by Garda District is not readily available and would require a disproportionate use of Garda resources to compile. However, I am informed by the Garda authorities that the number of Garda vehicles decommissioned in the years 2008, 2009 and 2010 broken down by Division is as detailed in the following tables:
