Written answers (Question to Justice)

The Private Security Authority is an independent statutory body under the aegis of my Department. It was established under the Private Security Services Act 2004, as amended, and holds responsibility for the licensing and regulation of the private security industry in Ireland.

As Minister for Justice and Equality, I am not involved in the day-to-day processing of applications by the Authority. It would not be appropriate for me to comment on any specific application submitted to and being considered by the Authority.
