Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 459 and 460 together.

The Deputy will appreciate that crime incidents are not recorded by the Department, as this is a matter for An Garda Síochána.

However, to be of assistance I have been in contact with the Garda Authorities to ascertain whether such statistics are available. I will contact the Deputy directly on receipt of a response.
