Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 259, 260 and 262 together.

The Deputy will appreciate that my Department is not responsible for the administration of the PULSE system, or the recording of road traffic enforcement statistics; which are matters for An Garda Síochána. However, to be of assistance, I have asked An Garda Síochána for a report in relation the the questions raised.

I will contact the Deputy directly on receipt of a Garda response.
