Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Deputy will be aware that the Criminal Justice (Fixed Charge Processing System) Working Group was established to oversee and facilitate the implementation of the recommendations of the Report of the Garda Síochána Inspectorate into the Fixed Charge Processing System. The Working Group is due to report to myself and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport in the coming weeks with respect to progress in relation to implementation of the Report's recommendations, including those referred to by the Deputy, and I expect to be in a position to put this information in the public domain in the near future.
