Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by my officials in the Irish Prison Service that data in relation to the number of prisoners on a restricted regime is collated in the census on a quarterly basis and therefore the data is not available for the date requested.  The last census available is April 2018.  

The statistics concerning prisoners on restricted regimes are available on the Irish Prison Service website www.irishprisons.ie, under Information Centre –  Statistics & Information – Census Reports.
