Written answers (Question to Justice)

As the Deputy will be aware it is the Garda Commissioner who is responsible for managing An Garda Síochána, and I, as Minister have no direct role in the matter.

I understand that the information requested by the Deputy is not readily available and requires the gathering and collation of information from each of the 28 Garda Divisions, which I am sure the Deputy will appreciate is an onerous task.

I am advised that the information requested is currently being compiled by the Commissioner and I will revert directly to the Deputy when it is to hand.
