Written answers (Question to Justice)

I have received a report from the Garda authorities who, after examination, inform me that the information requested by the Deputy relating to the number of Garda checkpoints which included other State Agencies carried out in the Garda R and J Districts in the years 2011, 2012 and to 20 November, 2013 is not recorded centrally and the precise number of such checkpoints cannot be ascertained without a disproportionate use of Garda resources. I am, however, further informed that approximately 30 such multi-agency checkpoints were conducted in the Garda R and J Districts between 2011 and 22 November, 2013.
