I propose to take Questions Nos. 37, 42 and 44 together.
The allegations relating to the cancellation by members of the Garda Síochána of fixed charge notices were forwarded to the Garda Commissioner in October 2012. The Garda Commissioner appointed an Assistant Commissioner to conduct an examination and to report on the allegations. I received an interim report from the Commissioner in November 2012 and the final report on 28 March 2013. Legal consideration has had to be given to certain privacy issues, but I will now be bringing the report to Government and I will then be in a position to make public its findings.
I believe that it was right for me to refer this matter to the Garda Commissioner for a fact-finding investigation, rather than establishing any other type of inquiry, and I would ask Deputies to withhold judgement, on this point or more generally, until they have all of the facts.
