Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I have already outlined to the House how the Attorney General brought matters of very serious concern relating to An Garda Síochána to my attention on Sunday 23rd March and the action that I took as a consequence. On Monday 24 March, I asked the Secretary General of the Department of Justice and Equality to convey to the then Commissioner my deep concern about these matters, and the fact that I would be reporting them to the Cabinet and to the Dáil.
