Written answers (Question to Justice)

In my response to his previous Parliamentary Question No. 545 of 6 September 2019, I was in a position to provide the Deputy with the most readily available figures from An Garda Síochána regarding the number of adult cautions issued by sub-district for the years requested.

In relation to the further breakdown now being sought, I am advised by the Garda authorities that the information is not currently available and would require a disproportionate amount of Garda time and resources to assemble.

However, if the Deputy is seeking information in relation to a particular Garda District, I would be happy to make further enquiries with the Garda authorities on his behalf.
