Mattie McGrath

Question:

Written answers (Question to Justice)

I can advise the Deputy that the number of non-nationals committed to prison  from 2011 until the end of 2018 is included in table 1. This table reports on committals rather than persons, as an individual can be committed more than once in a given year.

I can further advise the Deputy that the number of non nationals held on Remand/Trial warrants over the same period is set out in table 2.
