Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 220 and 226 together.

As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for managing and controlling generally the administration and business of An Garda Síochána as well as for decisions in relation to the allocation and management of Garda equipment and resources, including in relation to ICT, in light of his identified operational demands. As Minister, I have no direct role in these matters.

I have asked the Garda Commissioner for the specific information requested and when it is to hand, I will write directly to the Deputy.
