I propose to take Questions Nos. 177 to 183, inclusive, together.
The Deputy will be aware that the Criminal Justice (Fixed Charge Processing System) Working Group has been established to oversee and facilitate the implementation of the recommendations of the Report of the Garda Inspectorate into the Fixed Charge Processing System. In doing so, the Group will have particular regard to the Action Plan, which I published on 12 March, 2014. The Group will report regularly to myself and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport.
The Action Plan sets out the position with respect to the Recommendations contained in the Report, including the Recommendations referred to by the Deputy above, and identifies whether they are actions which have already been taken or commenced by An Garda Síochána or envisaged to be dealt with within 6-8 weeks, in the medium or indeed in the longer term. In that regard items 2.7, 2.8 and 3.1 are identified as being already underway or for immediate commencement, items 2.1, 3.8, 3.10 are for implementation within 6-8 weeks whereas item 3.2 is a medium term objective.
