Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy is aware my Department is currently examining key issues relating to firearms licensing in conjunction with An Garda Síochána. The recommendations arising from this process are nearing completion. I expect to receive a report in relation to these matters in the coming weeks. Consultation with relevant stakeholders will take place when I have considered the report and before any decisions are finalised in relation to proposals for changes to the firearms licensing system.
