Written answers (Question to Justice)

I am advised by the Garda authorities that the attached table outlines the number of bicycles stolen and the number of bicycles recovered in the Dublin area for the years in question.

I am further advised that it was not possible for An Garda Síochána to reliably determine if a bicycle had been returned to the owner or if a bicycle is being stored at a Garda station.
